Tips and tricks for Haiku/BeOS users

Don’t use EZBios

Contributed by: Dave D.
This tip is valid for: Both BeOS and Haiku

If you have a motherboard running an older BIOS and a Western Digital hard drive, you probably have the WD EZBios utility running to enable use of large hard drives. The presence of EZBios will make it impossible to boot BeOS.

The solution is to upgrade your motherboard BIOS and disable EZBios, since you won’t need it anymore.
