Agie mondo 30 boot up fail

Help.
I have a Agie mondo 30 with dead mother board battery. I never got round to replacing and just reset the BIOS settings each time and then the Agie controller would launch to its home page (were you set your machine run page parameters etc)

The problem I have now is that even with resetting BIOS the controller main page no longer boots and hangs in Dos mode. So can’t access home parameter page.

Any ideas to try and launch the main home Agie screen ? Thanks

If you can get to the BIOS, is there an "auto detect hard drive"
or "IDE Setup"? If it gets hung up in DOS then you either have
a setting incorrect or a defective hard drive

That you sir. I will check these points.

Hi.
I have doubled checked the settings and they are correct.
It hangs/stalls as per the attached picture. I cannot find IDE or way to check the hard drive. In BIOS I found format and analyse options, but warns will wipe all data - so didn't proceed at that point.
- How would I replace the hard drive and with what ?
- would a new hard drive affect the agie control program or need to be re-installed anything onto the new drive ?
Many thanks

If your hard drive is defective you have lost
everything. First, need to see a picture of the
main BIOS screen and a picture of the motherboard
which is located on the upper rack of the control
unit. This will give me an idea of what to do next

You have a 386 motherboard which means you
have to use a hard drive less than a gig
in size. Then you have to load DOS on it
then the Mondo software.
