Supermicro P6DGU, 2x550 PIIIs, 384 SDRAM, W98SE. I have upgraded this machine myself, but there is a problem with the cache not being written to HD as it shuts down. (I think). I remember PCA had a cure for this some time ago, but I can't remember it, or find it in the 'SEARCH'. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Please. Thanks
Thanks guys - but I've tried both these solutions to no avail. I think it requires a registry tweak - something to do with slowing down the hardware, so that windows has time to unload before shut-down....
grianal, also if you have Norton AV, then Options - Autoprotect - Advanced, and untick "Scan floppy disk in A: for boot viruses when shutting down". Look at this site for a superb compilation of shutting down solutions for all versions of Windows. click here
Hello Jester: thanks for info on IDE. I should have mentioned my machine is scsi. Which probably knocks out the IDE patch. W98 & 98SE BOTH support dual processors - so no problem. (btw, I bought XP upgrade and tried to get a dual-boot up & running, but have had to give up on it, as it hangs on the notorious 39 min parse). Thanks for your help.
