If you’re running an Epox 8KHA+ motherboard with an Athlon XP processor, and can’t get BeOS (R5) to boot, here’s a hint: check the Advanced Features section of your BIOS for an option that disables the Athlon XP’s SSE instructions. Disable it and the BeOS should boot fine. If said option isn’t present, make sure you have the very latest BIOS revision.
