Intel Boot agent conflict?

By ethernot ·
I have a Compaq Deskpro ep/sb series computer.

When I turn on the power the first screen I get has the RAM in the top left and F10=setup in the bottom right.

It stays like this for about 45 - 50 sec. and then it boots up into W95.

This machine has 96mb of RAM, Celeron 300.

It also has an Intel pro/100+ Management adapter. When this machine finally boots up it boots up (a,cd,then HDD).

When I get this above mentioned first screen I press F10 and then "ctrl" - "s". This allows me to go to the Intel setup program.
This program looks as follows:
Intel Pro/100 Boot agent ver.2 setup prog.
Boot Protocol: PXE
PnP/BEV Boot: disable
Default Boot: Local
Local Boot: Enable
Prompt Time: 2
setup message: disable

How can I get this machine to boot up without the looong delay? I am stumped.

Thank you Mark.

Intel Boot agent conflict?

Some proprietary machines like compaq, IBM, etc...
Have a very peculiar Bios, in a way that it checks all devices like memory, HDD, video, Keyboard, etc...
For that usually, when the amount of memory change, you get a message at boot saying, "The amount of memory changed: Accept/Ignore..."
Some CMOS have an option button to disable it; something like "Disable system check at startup".

Good Luck!

In BIOS set your hard drive to boot first and for the Intel card set Prompt Time = 0
