Boot freezes in POST 98
« on: 08-December-12, 16:43:08 »

Hi, what does it mean when computer start-up freezes in UEFI BIOS POST screen with "98" in the lower right?
B75MA-P45

PS: Sometimes the computer boots, sometimes it freezes, always with the step described as 98.

98= Console I/O (VGA, RAID, parallel ports, serial ports)

What components do you have in your system?

Did you by chance just update the vbios to a hybrid version?

PS: Looking for to see if any beta bios's are available from MSI. Will post when I get an answer.

I have not found any bios update for that Sapphire card. Current BIOS does not seem to support GOP, so it is most probably non-hybrid. The current BIOS number is 015.014.000.001. I have an open ticket with Sapphire asking them for a BIOS with GOP support, but it is too early to have a reply from them.

Hi, I have tried another GPU card (Sapphire HD 3870) and it also freezes in POST 98. As such, the issue does not seem to be an issue of a specific GPU card.

PS: By freeze I mean that the POST 98 is shown for at least 60 seconds (usually the whole system boots in 15 seconds) being followed by a manual restart.

Reseat cpu. Before placing it again check the socket for bent or missing pins. If no such problems to be seen clear cmos (>>Clear CMOS Guide<<) and retry.

Thank you for another tip. I've did that and preliminary results shows that the issue is happening when Fast Boot: USB Support is set to Partial Initial. When the switch is set back to Full Initial, the freeze does not seem to be happening.

If you have a ssd, you mind as well disable fast boot, with out a boot to bios switch, its a pain in the butt and hardly a different when booting with an ssd.

Hi xmad. Thank you for your recommendation. Unfortunately, I have difficulties in parsing your last message, especially the part between the words "with out" and "butt". Would you please rewrite it a bit for me? Thank you.

Fast Boot is not really nessesary when you have an SSD installed.
Using my Intel system you see in my signature, there is no difference other than not being able to access uefi/bios directly.
If you board isn't equipped with a "boot to bios switch", you need to eaither clear your cmos or use the "fast boot utility".
