Dear valued MiniLab Factory customer. Thank you for purchasing original spare parts. When buying
original spare parts you are entitled to receive help from us and therefore we wrote this document. We are well
aware that this document will be copied and distributed thought out the world, even to the people who are
buying substandard spare parts, but expect to receive the same kind of help. For those who do not purchase
the original spare parts from MiniLab Factory or their authorised dealers, be warned copyright law throughout
out the world prohibits using this document. It can and will be punished to the fullest extend of the law. As well
as you are entitled to receive free replacement license keys for your original purchased licenses. Please see
the enclosed license key unlocking sticker, which has to be send in with your license key replacement request.
This document is intended for technical personal and not the normal d-lab 1 operator or owner. This document
does describe to some extend the replacement of an MPU (gigabyte 1000 Pro) with a Siemens Fujitsu
(D2156-S) motherboard after a mother board crash.
There are many way to accomplish this. There is the direct replacement of the motherboard. As well as the
exchange between the mother boards. This exchange between the mother boards (the IPU become the MPU)
will be more expensive, but it will reduce your down time by at least one day. When exchanging the IPU and
MPU motherboards you will keep your machine data unchanged and therefore will not have to contact MiniLab
Factory for replacement licenses. As well as your machine and product configuration are still in place and can
be used as soon as the machine will boot again.
Note: the above only applies for a motherboard crash not a hard disk crash. If the hard disk crashes a mother
board replacement will not help. You have to replace the hard disk. You will have to load all your data manually.
Over last years it has been common not to back up your d-lab.1 data. If you are one of the lucky once, who did
back up the machine and channel configurations and LCD offset values you are in luck you can skip the first
part of this document.

Errors during a software load.
MPU:
It has been reported that the int. and ext. Network (LAN) card might have the wrong address assigned to it.
Please see in the below software installation instruction, how to set the Network (LAN) address.
It has been reported that some mother boards will not boot. Due to an error in the BIOS settings, the <halt on
keyboard> or <halt on all errors> had been set to on.
IPU:
It has been reported that some mother boards will not boot. Due to an error in the BIOS settings, the <halt on
keyboard> or <halt on all errors> had been set to on.
Hard disk:
A Linux image file load could not be loaded, because one or more files had been set to read only. Therefore reformat the hard disk. To re-format use the MPU PC, you will have to delete the done files again.
Switch off during boot:
If your IPU switches on, but after 15 to 25 sec it switches off. Make sure that you reverse the plug on the
Power on LED socket. The polarity is important on this plug! Most of the time both wires are grey, therefore
we do not know for sure which end is Plus(+) while the other is (-).
BIOS :
It has been reported that an incorrect BIOS setting had been loaded on mother boards. Due to the nature of our
st
business we never know which BIOS we have to load. Please insert the 1 boot CD (MPU disk 1), after the boot
you will see the boot menu. Select the BIOS settings (2) and load the correct mother board BIOS.
Please note: not load the IPU BIOS to the MPU or the MPU settings on the IPU mother board. No harm will
occur, but your system will not boot correctly.
