EFI Shell Version 2.31 [4.633]
Current running mode 1.1.2
Map: Cannot find required ma name

Press Esc in 5 seconds to skip startup.nsh, any other key to continue

shell id>


The message above is what i get after the flash screen. Nothing happens if i press Esc or any other key to skip the "startup.nsh it just finishes the count down faster. If i type "exit" it sends me to the bios menu. I have made the HDD primary start up but still nothing. The DVD drive doesn't run the motherboards CD.

I installed the below replacing the old parts.
Crucial BLT2CP2G3D1608DT1TX0CEU Tactical 4GB kit (2GBx2), Ballistix 240-pin DIMM, DDR3 PC3-12800 Memory Module

Intel Core i3 2125 3.3 GHz Processor with Socket 1155, L3 3Mb, Sandy Bridge, 32nm

MSI Z77A-G43 Motherboard (Intel Core i3/i5/i7/Pentium/Celeron, Intel Z77, ATX, RAID, Gigabit LAN, Socket LGA1155)



Im at a loss, need help please.

That thread looks promising. Im sure i put the memory in the correct sockets but il give it a play about when i get home from the internet cafe.

Just in case it doesn't work i forgot to mention there are three numbers that come up in the bottom right corner just before the flash image 99 then 90 then A2 if this means anything.

There are other threads that blame the absence of a disk as the reason. Because you see the A2 = IDE Detect as the last code, i think that could be it. Make sure at least one sata drive is detected.

"There are other threads that blame the absence of a disk as the reason. Because you see the A2 = IDE Detect as the last code, i think that could be it. Make sure at least one sata drive is detected. "

This was my issue. I forgot to install the SATA cables between the mobo and the two drives.

Now for my rant: Why the %&^&%$ can't the programmers of these BIOS systems give us an intelligent error message. If there is no SATA drive installed TELL ME THERE IS NO SATA DRIVE! Do NOT tell me "map: cannot find required map name". This is a misleading, insipid, LAZY error message. If the executives at MSI are too stupid or too cheap to hire decent programmers, I will refuse to buy their products. End of story.
