I guess it was 995 and I did see it but it really offered no real answer.
About upgrading the bios, well I bought this computer new in December. This
may be part of the problem is that this is too new so how can I upgrade?
I did try to use it on a much older laptop ( Gateway 5002 WLMI ) and it
get by this error message and continues to boot. I do however get a lot of
hardware issues with OI and I don't have the greater power and hardware
virtualization that this Dell has.
I will offer up more information on this topic as we go and at some point
there is an answer to this question.
