Description:

  When you attempt to boot, a 'you need service' message comes up, and has a LED style number on thetop left hand corner. Here is what they mean.

Disclaimer:

  This information is a believed to be correct, should be as close as it gets;

Also:

  Bootloader stuff you should never see, since if it fails kernel doesn't boot. (thus you see no message)

Code What sets it Description
0 any No error (duh)
1 bootldr Unknown exactly, something to do with checking the motherboard
2 bootldr Eeprom check failed
3 bootldr not used?
4 bootldr Ram check failed
5 kernel HDD not locked (retail bioses require the hd to be locked)
6 kernel Cannot unlock HDD
7 kernel HDD timeout
8 kernel No HDD found
9 kernel HDD parameters (PIO/DMA/or size {debug}, certain size minimum is required for debug)
10 kernel DVD timeout
11 kernel No DVD Found
12 kernel DVD parameters (PIO/DMA)
13 kernel Dashboard launch fail (due to missing/bad key, or anything else that would prevent it from running) and the dashboard didn't specify why it failed.
14 dashboard Error loading dashboard (dashboard generic error)
15 dashboard NO microsoft dashboard
16 dashboard Other files to do with dashboard / dashboard settings (specific dashboard error)
17 not used not used?
18 not used not used?
19 not used not used?
20 kernel The dashboard was attempted to load and failed; It was a cold boot, and the dashboard didn't specify why it failed, but it (for some reason) needed to be noted that the dvd passed the challenge/response authentication
21 anywhere This error says that the machine was booted to display a error, basically someone told the machine to reboot (or launch a xbe) with this flag, and the error code just means its been rebooted by the flag

In closing: 21 was the highest number I could find, I dont think anynthing is past that. And for the unknown ones, I couldn't find anyreference to them at all, I don't believe they are used.

Greets to everyone (who is contributing) in the homebrew scene.


Thanks loji for info about error 15.
