Default **** Udated ASUS P2B BIOS Beta ASUS P2B --- Same Problems!!!

I updated(Flashed) the BIOS from
ASUS P2B ACPI BIOS Revision 1012
to
ASUS P2B ACPI BIOS Revision 1014 BETA 003
When I try to install Windows 98SE from CD drive
I get the following BIOS error message;
CD-ROM: Failure
I tried three different working CD dives
and get the same error!!!
However Windows 98 Boot disk worked OK to install.
How do I fix this BIOS problem?
Is there some problem with the CD disk,
CD-ROM dive, BIOS or something else?

Also Windows 98SE does not turn off correctly.
I installed Windows 98SE fix, this ddnot work!!!
How do fix this problem?

Also the Windows 98SE start-up takes to long.
Is there some way to fix this problem?

Thank You

Was there a particular reason that you flashed your bios? Not just any bios, but a beta bios?

Are you using one IDE ribbon cable for the cdrom drive?

Some old computers will not shutdown all the way, due to acpi not supported.

You havnt got a bootable copy of windows,using a startup disk is exactly the same thing as a bootable cdrom,get the latest upgates from microsoft to fix the shutdown issues.

The Win98 Installation CD will boot up on another computer?
The CD is OK!!!
The CD drive is on one IDE cable.
Also Windows 98SE does not turn off correctly.
I installed Microsoft Windows 98SE fix,
this didnot correct the problem!!!
The system hangs-up with Windows Shutting down screen.
Is this a BIOS problem?
How do fix this problem?

Also the Windows 98SE start-up takes to long.
Is there some way to fix this problem?

Someone suggested that the Beta BIOS would fix my problems!!!
The Beta BIOS works the same as the old BIOS version.
