I have copied the iso pimp-2.2-rc5-nvidia to my ssd via a sub to sata cable yet when I boot into my bios and try to boot from the hard drive with the pimp image it just flashes the screen and goes back to the bios.
Motherboard: ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO
GPU - Nvidia 1080 GTX
I have set all known bios settings in the https://forum.getpimp.org/topic/9/setting-up-motherboards-for-mining page.
Hello James I found your post. Glad to assist!
We have noticed that some users prefer the 2.2-rc2-nvidia image. If you use this image and then run
pimpupit will bring you up to the 2.2-rc5-nvidia. This should be an easy solution: Download that image and write it to the SATA connected SSD using the HDDRawCopy Tool and the instructions here: https://forum.getpimp.org/topic/12/how-to-write-the-pimp-os-image-using-windows
We also can provide real time assistance to you in the PIMP Discord: https://discord.me/pimp
If you Come in and say @Support Imaging issues https://forum.getpimp.org/topic/138/cant-boot-from-hd then all of the miners can jump in and help you even when Support does not see it yet.
As a 3rd idea you can sometimes try to force the boot from the disk using the F12 or F11 Boot menu that is provided by the ASUS BIOS. I do note that your gardware is known to be compatible with PIMP. (And quite optimal!!!)
Awaiting your successful reply ~ Please let us know if either of these 3 solutions helps you.

@sandeepioba I had similar problem when I first using PIMP. The Usermanual is not up to date when come to first boot. If you follow the instruction about burning image to SSD and get to that point but having a blank screen once boot up your PIMP machine. Try do this:
1.) Use a different computer, access your router and look for the IP address of your PIMP machine. (It's a good idea to reserve that IP for the PIMP machine from this point on)
2.) Use Putty to SSH remote into the PIMP machine using the IP address you found.
3.) After that, use Putty to activate your PIMP machine and do all the PIMP stuffs there.
You don't really need to plug in any mouse, keyboard or monitor to your PIMP machine. Just use Putty from another computer to control your PIMP machine.
This is the error log i got...when i booted on other motherboard https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnhph7z7YO8
BusyBox means reimage.
Write the image to the SSD again. MAKE SURE TO CLEANLY EJECT OR POWER OFF BEFORE REMOVING.

At last i have pimped my rig....the solution for me was i connected single GPU directly to x16 slot without riser...and connected to monitor using GPU...thats all i did...blank screen went off......thank you all for your support....+=)
