System board installation - NetVista 2254, 2257, 6337, 6342, 6348

Attention: Before replacing a system board, back up asset information.


  1. The BIOS and Vital Product Data (VPD) for the computer you are servicing must be installed on the new system board Field Replacement Unit (FRU) after it is installed in the computer. To do this, you must run the Flash Update program using the Flash Update diskette.
  2. Always ensure the latest level of BIOS is installed on the computer. A down level BIOS may cause false errors and unnecessary replacement of the system board.
  3. The processor is a separate FRU from the system board and is not included with the system board FRU.
  4. If the new system board does not correct the problem, reinstall the options on the old system board, reinstall the old system board, then replace the processor.

To replace the system board, do the following:

  1. Remove the cover. For more information, see Cover removal.
  2. Remove the 7 screws that attach the system board to the chassis.
