OK here is the configuration:
PC100 BXPRO board
2 x 128MB 100mhz 168-pin SDRAM DIMM (Kingston KTC6611/128)
PII MMX Processor
Keyboard with AT connection
Master hard drive on IDE0
Master CDROM on IDE1
The BIOS is properly configured -- i.e., comp speed to 100mhz to match ram, s.m.a.r.t. enabled, quickboot disabled (just in case), floppy drive seek on, processor speed set to 400mhz -- ram volt jumpers set to 3.3v (default for this board & correct for RAM being used). - I have already reset the CMOS various times.
THE PROBLEM IS THIS: The system never seems to boot up without help. When booting up the system will hang after doing the RAM check & will just display "WAIT..." --- when I press a key on the keyboard it will proceed. However, if I am trying to install an OS such as Win 2000 or Win NT various keyboard keys will no longer register such as the enter key, & the F1, F2, etc... keys --> which are necessary for install.... PLEASE HELP - Thanks.
