I checked the screen MBA... and its a app called Managed PC Boot Agent v4.30. I never installed this nor have i ever seen it, any help on removing it?

I had the same thing with a 3com

what i did was pull it out and just bought a new NIC. They're cheap enough!

Or I could suggest that you pull it out, remove the driver, reboot. Then reinstall it and reboot.

All it is, is giving you a option to boot from network if avalible. it shouldn't really slow anything down. it's just a useful feature built into newer nics and most onboard nics, most home users would never use it, it's used in corporations where the computer loads the os and apps from a central server and not from the local disk.

Q, sorry to disagree, but with the 3 com card (at least the one I had that was a year old) it does add a significant amount of time to the boot process.

Don't hate me for disagree, you are stil da man

Well i checked some pages on 3COM and i found a Dos Diagnostic Prog to Disable the Boot PROM in the NIC and now its gone and NIC is running perfectly!

I have a 3com

My card does the same thing but it only takes like 2-5 seconds before it bypasses it.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
