[SOLVED]Bios Asus P8Z77-V Pro

Postby adhemar » 10 Feb 2018 16:23

Hello, i'm Flemish (70+) and my English is not so good.
First I try SolydK 9 64 bit on my Asus desktop pc, but the installation stops on a black screen.
With Linux Mint, no problem. I think that the BIOS tuning is not correct.
For the moment, I work with Windows 7 64 bit and I do not want to use Linux Mint in the future.
On my laptop (HP Probook), no problem for use SolydD in live mode. I just could not find how to manage a wireless connection.
The startup of both PCs is done via the DVD

First the desktop PC, what should I consider to adjust the bios?

Manual P8Z77-V PRO
http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA ... -V_PRO.pdf

Can you lead me to the solution?
thanks

Hi adhemar, and welcome to our forum.

Have you tried to boot the DVD in safe mode?
When you start the DVD you will see a simple boot menu. Use the down arrow key to select the second menu item and boot from that by hitting the Enter key.

Note that for SolydX only the menu colors will be different.

Hi, thank you for answer my.
The first thing I did is reset the BIOS to: Load Optimized Defaults.
Then corrected the boot sequence.
Now this works. The desktop PC is connected to the internet via a powerline. No problem.

Next the laptop. With this device I have to be wireless on the internet.
Is this possible to make that connection without first using a cable?
Are tutorials available for this?

Thanks in advance.

Did you left-click on the wireless icon in the system tray?

If you don't see it, you might want to try the triangle icon in the system tray. This will show a list of inactive system tray applications.

If your network card has the appropriate drivers installed, you should see a list of available networks in your neighborhood. When you hover over the network you want to connect to a Connect button appears. You then need to provide your password to log in.

If no networks are available, you do not have the right driver installed for your network card. If it is a Broadcom card, SolydXK System Settings can help you install the appropriate driver but you'll need an internet connection to do that and you'll need to cable connect the laptop.

To find out what network card you have, please post back the output of the following terminal command:

Code: Select all

inxi -Nxx

You are using the right driver "e1000e" for your adapter. The driver is a module loaded by the current kernel.

The current version is:

Code: Select all

sudo modinfo e1000e | grep ^version
version:        3.2.6-k


There is a newer version available at Intel but that would mean building your own driver and because you indicated that you're a new Linux user I wouldn't recommend doing that, especially because there's no indication that it will solve your problem.

Can you post the output of these commands:

Code: Select all

sudo iwconfig
This will show the wireless configuration of your system.

Code: Select all

nmcli dev wifi
This will scan your neighborhood for wireless networks.

I see there's a newer version in backports:

Code: Select all

$ apt policy firmware-iwlwifi
firmware-iwlwifi:
  Installed: 20161130-3
  Candidate: 20161130-3
  Version table:
     20170823-1~bpo9+1 100
        100 http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian stretch-backports/non-free amd64 Packages
        100 http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian stretch-backports/non-free i386 Packages
 *** 20161130-3 500
        500 http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian stretch/non-free amd64 Packages
        500 http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian stretch/non-free i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
You could try that but I can't guarantee that it'll work:

Code: Select all

apt install -t stretch-backports firmware-iwlwifi
Reboot after this.

If that still doesn't work I found some posts while looking for a solution that suggested to disable bluetooth in the bios.

I forgot that not everybody has the backports repository enabled. My apologies.

You may enable backports by starting the SolydXK System Settings application, Repositories tab. At the top you will find a check box to enable backports and a button to save it.

When done you can repeat the install command above.

There was a lot of movements in the konsole, but I do not see nowhere the wireless icon.

I'm afraid I cannot help you further. Without knowing what these "movements" were I cannot be sure if everything went right.

Just a few checks I can think of now:
Make sure that other devices have a wireless internet connection through your router.
Make sure the network manager is installed:

Code: Select all

apt reinstall network-manager plasma-nm
Googling for your laptop and wifi driver issues I cannot find anything suggesting that it should work out of the box.

The internet radio works via the router.

A little bit more and we are there, thank you for guiding me.

If you don't see the icon in the system tray perhaps you can find it in the "Status and Notification" area. It's the triangle in the system tray.

You can also right click on somewhere on the system tray > System Tray Settings > Entries tab and set Networks to show.

But I really doubt that it would change anything.

After this, I'm really out of ideas.

I will look again at other sources and then carry out a new installation.
Thank you, I will study everything again.
