I built a new P55/i5 box with XP, and after I installed a SCSI card (Adaptec 2940W) I get the following message on boot after it goes through the SCSI card's BIOS:
No enough APIC ID in range 0-0Fh can be assigned to IO APICs.
(Re-assigning CPUs' local APIC ID may solve this issue)
MPS Table is not built! System may operate in PIC or Non-MPS mode.
Press F1 to Resume.

When I press F1 the computer seems to boot normally.... What does that mean? Should I be worried?

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

MPS stands for Multi-Processor Specification.

Your problem may be resolved by changing a setting in your systems BIOS setup utility related to your Processor settings.

I can give you better advice if you post the motherboard make and model number. This way I can check the BIOS setup settings that are available for your motherboard.
