Hi again everyone. First, thank you for all the help I received from everyone.

This is the situation.

I installed v.1.2.

They run great for awhile then after rebooting, I get configuration errors  at start up.

The only thing I did was upgrade the 256 meg memory chip to a 512.

I dont think that start up configuarion errors are related to the memory because if I hit F2 to resume, the machine starts.

Does anyone have the bios settings written down or have access to? Kodak wants to sell me a service contract which I dont need. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

parameters for bios to G3 kiosk kodak

.BIOS Setup utility

Connect a keyboard then power on the console.

At the IBM Splash screen, press the F1 key momentarily.

After approximately 20 seconds you should see the menu titled "IBM Setup Utility"


Use the left, right, up and down arrow keys to navigate to within the Setup Utility.

Press the enter key on the selected option you wish to change.

Press the Esc key to return to the previous screen.

Refer to the menu at the bottom of the screen for additional help.

BIOS / BOOT Passwords

It is possible to configure passwords in the BIOS settings to restrict access and prevent the system from starting.

Kodak do not use such passwords and they should not be configured on a customers kiosk.

If the system prompts for a password when booting or accessing the BIOS, enter the password if known.

If not known you can clear the BIOS to factory defaults by removing the 'Coin Battery' fitted the motherboard.

With the battery removed for 30 seconds all BIOS settings including passwords are reset to default, password = disabled
