ASUS P4P800 Deluxe motherboard and 1016 BIOS
Date: Sat May 15 2004 - 12:42:02 EST
Does anyone else have problems starting linux with the 1016 BIOS of an
ASUS P4P800 Deluxe motherboard?
I tried to start Knoppix 3.4 with this BIOS and it would freeze right
after the initial boot screen. I also use Debian and it freezes when
booting up. I'm using version 1014 of the BIOS and it seems to work
fine. I didn't try the 1015 version because 1016 came less than a month
later which suggests there was something wrong with 1015.
I suspect that the BIOS changes with the USB stuff is what's causing the
boot failure because they've done a lot of changes in that area between
1014 and 1016. Actually, the USB stuff works a bit better in Windows
with 1016 because I can see my USB devices with it without switching the
USB mode to FastSpeed (USB 1.1) in the BIOS but all USB devices appear
as 1.1 devices even though some of them are 2.0 device. Linux with the
1014 version works fine with USB devices (both 1.1 and 2.0 devices).
