PHARBOOTSYS Error when Booting Real-Time PC from USB Key
Primary Software Version: 2009 SP1
Primary Software Fixed Version: N/A
Secondary Software: N/A
I created a Desktop PC Utility USB Drive, but when I attempt to boot my desktop PC from the USB key I see one of the following error messages:
If you see the error message
As stated in the LabVIEW Real-Time 8.6 Manual, RT 8.6 no longer includes updated versions of the PXI and Desktop PC Floppy Disk Utilities. If you have older versions of LabVIEW Real-Time installed, then you can still use Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX) to create previous versions of the RT floppy disks, which will continue to work with newer versions of the Real-Time Module. However, older versions of the RT floppy disks do not support device drivers added to subsequent versions of the Real-Time Module. If you need to use the latest device drivers, you must use MAX to create an RT 8.6 USB Utility drive.
Suggestion: If the target already has 8.5.1 on the HDD, then just upgrade to 8.6 in MAX by adding/removing software in Remote Systems. There's no need to use a USB or floppy if you are just upgrading.
