Linux Is Beeping!!! Make It Stop!


i have my server attached to a manual switch, i am trying to set it up for an unattended boot, unfortunately when it comes to the
"Loading Linux..................." it beeps at me until i turn the switch for just a second, then i can turn it back, its not a bios issue cause its not a bios sounding beep. what am i missing? anyone?

I never encountered that problem, but I will try to help.

Are you sure that the MBR is being pointed to the right boot files?

Maybe if that was incorrect it would just beep at you.

ah yes, encountered this problem a while ago, and thought my comp had died. i encountered it again later on a different machine, and realized that the bios does that when it dosent detech ram or a graphics card, or other required devices. apparently my ram was bad

Try kicking it really hard - or using a bat - I find that works pretty well.

Wait a minute... are you using a switch that connects two or more keyboards or mice?

If not, then what kind of switch?
