Changing component to something more appropriate...
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2004-05-25 23:15:51 EDT
Are there any BIOS upgrades available for that machine?
Comment 3 Jon Wohlberg 2004-05-26 10:55:10 EDT
I tried to install with the bios that came with machine. When that 
didn't work I upgraded the bios to the latest version with the same 
results. As it stands the bios is at the latest version.
