Some BIOSs have a setting in the Pn P section called "Reset Configuration Data".
If you receive a message "updating ESCD...." you can the also manually "reset" the configuration of the computer's ESCD.
You will then be prompted to enter the recovery key to progress and the system will ask for this on each reboot.
Diagnosis: Depending on the circumstances, this message may indicate an error or a normal operating condition.
NOTE: Using robot software to mass-download the site degrades the server and is prohibited. This message is displayed when the system detects a change in the hardware configuration and therefore updates the Plug and Play information that it has stored.
Please consider a donation to The PC Guide Tip Jar. Explanation: ESCD stands for "extended system configuration data", and is where resource information is stored on a system that uses Plug and Play.
A place in the computer's Pn P BIOSs where information about peripheral devices is stored that reflects the status of the systems configuration the last time the computer was booted.
This applies mainly to early motherboards, more commonly referred to as "legacy" equipment.
