On my first boot of the DG43NB (with Core 2 and memory installed; no peripherals installed), I only get as far as this message:
"Intel Boot Agent GE V1.3.22
Initializing and establishing link
PXE - E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE - M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent
Can't I at least get to the CMOS Setup Utility without having any drives connected?
