I recently added a new Samsung SP0411N hard drive, because my old HD had failed. I have a Packard Bell Platinum 4200, running Windows 98 SE and Amibios Easy Setup Utilities version 1.16. Since then, I've noticed a crash when exiting the BIOS. To reproduce:
1) Press Delete when starting up to access the BIOS.
2) Press Escape to exit the BIOS screen without saving changes.
3) The BIOS then displays further info on the screen about my computer but then when it gets to "Primary Master", it crashes. The floppy drive light comes on (even though there is no disk in it) and nothing seems to work (even Ctrl + Alt + Del doesn't work).
Interestingly, if I exit with saving changes (F10), I don't get a crash.
Here is the information about my HD from the BIOS:
IDE Device Configuration:
Fast Programmed I/O Modes:
32 Bit Transfer Mode:
Can anyone explain why the crash is happening and what could be done to resolve it?
Thanks in Advance,
