Post Chassis Intruded! Fatal Error...
Just to inform you all.
In the new chassis, there is a sensor in the backpart of the Hippo that seems to know if some backplates are missing... and this results in that the unit wont start.
I will fish for some more information and reasons why it is there but for now, make sure all backplates are in your new units.

If you still run into trouble, feel free to give me a call if neccessary.

All my best

Hi Johan
This does seem weird. I have been running Hippotizer with missing back panels.
There is not a sensor to my knowledge.
Which back panels did you remove?

Johan. Tom is correct. As far as I am aware there is no provision for Chasis Intrusion as part of the case. However, this is a feature of most motherboards to allow admimistrators in critical environments to monitor access to hardware. If you have this error message it is more likely that you have lost a jumper off the motherboard in transit or a setting has been changed in the bios to enable it. How you cure it will depend on the type of Motherboard you have in that system. If you already know then the manual is available as a pdf from the ASUS website. If you don't know then let us have the the serial number and we can probably tell you.

James and Tom..

i did take a readthrough of the Asus manual. The specific mobo does not have this function, it is a locked function on the P5W mobo.
I was very surprised to get this message, you both know that I have been playing around with these machines for a looooong time.

In the new chassis, there is a separate pcb that has a sensor (the LED pcb), this sensor is taken with a cable to the backpart of the chassis and is kind of hanging out... I disconnected this and got the unit back up and running.. What the sensor does, I dont know, anyway, by disconnecting it, I got around this problem. Have not had the time to recreate this problem but I do not want to see it again.
