I'm building a new PC and i'm having some problems with the motherboard. Everything seems fine upon boot up, but then i get the following message:
Not enough space in Runtime area!!. SMBIOS data will not be available.
Press F1 to Resume
I can press F1 and continue to Windows installation (i can't install windows as the HDD i'm using seems to be broken: Windows (i've tried both Vista and 8) refuses to copy all the necessary files over and returns various errors, but i believe this is unrelated to the Runtime error as i get it without the HDD attached).
I've tried booting with minimum components attached, different memory etc and discovered it seems to be down to the keyboard being plugged. If there's a keyboard plugged in (whether an MS Wireless Multimedia USB keyboard or old Compaq PS/2 one) the error occurs. Without either the USB or PS/2 keyboard, no error.
I've reset the CMOS jumpers, removed the CMOS battery for an hour, updated to the latest BIOS to no avail.
Assuming the HDD problems i'm having are unrelated and i can install Windows on a new HDD i plan on purchasing, then this isn't a massive problem. But obviously i don't want to have to keep pressing F1 every time i turn the PC on, to get into Windows. And obviously i don't want to have to unplug the keyboard to prevent the error, every time i turn the PC on!
My spec is below, does anybody have any ideas please?
