I have an old Packard Bell Platinum 2030 with a SL2U7 Pentium II 450, which I have been trying to upgrade to a Pentium III. It powers up, the POST screen appears, and everything appears to work fine (except the CPU's identified as a Pentium II), but it always hangs sometime during POST. There's no specific point where it hangs; it's erratic. I've tried it with a SL35E and a SL35D. It hangs on both, though it seems to work somewhat better on the SL35D. I'm sure I need a new BIOS, but I can't find one (current version is PhoenixBIOS 4.0 Release 6.0 4S4EB0X1.11A.0005.P04). When I put the SL2U7 back in, everything's fine again.
Can't remember the motherboard model (although the manual says it's a 'MediaBlaster Version 1') I think's it's OEM
ATI Xpert98 8mb AGP 2x
What's the difference between Deschutes and Katmai? I was under the impression that Katmai was merely an improved Deschutes. What's different about the Katmai that would cause it to not work properly?
Is there anything else I can do or am I out of luck?
