									 Resolving the Scanning PCI BUS using Mechanism #2 Error

            when using the Win98/Win98SE Boot Disk


During the initialization of a Win98/Win98SE Boot Disk the system may hang
and display a message that says:

"Scanning PCI BUS using Mechanism #2"

This problem happens under certain circumstances or configurations. To get around
this particular issue you will need to rename all of the SCSI ASPI drivers on the
diskette, follow the instructions below.

**If you are using a SCSI CD Rom or Hard Disk we recommend
disconnecting them while using the modified Boot Disk, as they will not be
detected.

-Boot up using the Win98/98SE Boot Disk. When you reach the Startup Menu
where you can select whether to start the computer with or without CD Rom
Support, press the "F5" Key. This will bring you to an A:> prompt.

-Type "REN ASPI2DOS.SYS ASPI2DOS.OLD" (without quotations) and then
press the "Enter" key.

-Type "REN ASPI4DOS.SYS ASPI4DOS.OLD" (without quotations) and then
press the "Enter" key.

-Type "REN ASPI8DOS.SYS ASPI8DOS.OLD" (without quotations) and then
press the "Enter" key.

-Type "REN ASPI8U2.SYS ASPI8U2.OLD" (without quotations) and then press
the "Enter" key.

-Type "REN ASPICD.SYS ASPICD.OLD" (without quotations) and then press the
"Enter" key.

-Press "Ctrl-Alt-Del" to restart the computer.

The process can be reversed if you plan to use the disk to Boot SCSI devices
in the future
