Sorry for the delay in posting. I never saw an email about the previous couple posts.
I did not have anything attached to the parallel or serial port. I have some USB devices like my keyboard and mouse and stuff like that.
BTW I tried the bios and it worked fine but I think the only thing it did was to add a single command to disable both ports. The previous bios had the appropriate commands to disable both the serial port and parallel port individually. I bet that would have worked fine now that the issue is understood to be a problem with windows and those 2 external ports.
I tried T60 and T61 and the both worked with the new bios.
