You're prepping for your first case of the day. You press the button to boot up your Siemens C-arm (Avantic, Varic, or Orbic) and, instead of the familiar menu, you get stuck on an error that reads, "operating system not found". This is far from a great start, but there's a good chance that you can clear this error in just a few minutes.
The Simple Solution
Check your CD or floppy disk drive. If there is a disk left inside remove it, power your C-arm down, and try again.This should allow your sytem to boot properly.
The Next Step
If there is no disk in your system, or if it shows the error again, try rebooting one more time. If you get the error again this last time, unfortunately, there could be a deeper problem in your system and further diagnosis will require a site visit from a service engineer.
