    bootup problem (XP Pro SP2)

    ASROCK K7S8XE motherboard with Athlon 2500 XP+
    won't reboot until you reboot it 4 times (that's a hard reset using the main power switch)
    Upon the fourth reboot the POST stuff comes up with a message to the effect that "The system has been unable to boot several times, hit F2 key to enter BIOS". Then the system comes up fine. I can't find anything obvious in the BIOS settings...Help!?!

    Did you upgrade BIOS to the latest version (2.1)? You can download the upgrade from here: http://www.asrock.com/support/downlo...7s8xe.htm#bios

    I'll try that. Do you think this is an issue that was addressed?
