No,we don't know. What is meant by your reference to a SCSI BIOS?

One could go through a a whole slew of possibilities from a ribbon cable not connected properly to the CD Rom just being old and needs replacing. So for a suggestion, find another CD Rom somewhere [maybe borrow one from that other identical system] and see if the computer does the same thing. If the other CD Rom from the identical system doesn't freeze up and crash your system, get a new CD Rom. Trying to fix one isn't worth the time and effort.
