You can try my tutorial out in the file library, it details a whole flight, and can help you out (shameless plug)But to answer this question, it sounds like perhaps the APU isn't supplying bleed air to the ducts. Make sure to start the APU and then turn on the APU BLEED switch.

Alain,Try flipping the switch all the way down to "OPEN" rather than auto. Also, make sure that the fuel cutoff valves are open. Double check that there aren't any blue lights on on the bottom half of the left hand side of the overhead panel, namely ones that say "[whatever] Valve Closed"

"I've tried..ecerything ok until #4 but whe I turn isolation valve to auto, the pressure doesn't react on the gauge..."Correct Boeing logic has been programmed into PMDG's Isolation Valve (since SU2). You must have at least one Pack OFF (or one engine bleed switch OFF) to enable the Valve to open to allow air to the Right Engine. Otherwise you will have to select the Isolation Valve to OPEN.Hope this helps.Cheers.Ian.
