  That is the solution.  Most BIOS's save what they last knew as the 
machine state and complain if anything is different when they boot back up.
Sometimes when you change out a non-booting hard disk on older BIOSs, or 
add memory, or open a machine with 'intrusion detection' the key to 
getting them to be quiet is just go into the BIOS menu and hit whatever
you need to to save the settings.  (other times you have to tweek a disk
type, or toggle a 'I know I opened the case' option...)

  Glad you got it working.
