If there is a non-IDE disk controller in your system, or you plan to use network disks or external hardware devices, first check the Hardware Compatibility List.
If you plan to use any external device, turn it on before starting the system.
If the motherboard in your computer supports the Serial ATA (SATA) devices, but IDE disks are also present, only the SATA devices should be set to the Enhanced Mode in BIOS.

If it fails too, select the Text mode in which the R-Studio Emergency user interface is shown in the pseudo-graphic mode compatible with all video cards. The help describes this pseudo-graphic mode.
