Issue Details

I have a PXIe-8135 and it boots to the system bios instead of my Windows operating system.


One cause of this behavior is a flat battery on the device's motherboard.  Contact National Instruments Support to have your device inspected and repaired.

A second cause could be an improper configuration of the device's switches.  Ensure that your "Boot Safe Mode" switch is set to off, as is depicted on pages 2-18 and 2-19 of the PXIe-8135 user manual.

Additional Information

Another indication of a flat battery on the device's motherboard is an incorrect or changing system time.
