you can flash a dos based f1 bypass mod on the nvram(called no f1boot) so it lets the machine run as per normal,without the need to hit the f1 button anymore. i did this on a ipaq pc with a tualatin adapter and pentium 3 s 1.4ghz cpu,the pc runs flawlessly + very fast regardless,as for the dumb 1801...

northwoods smoke the prescotts anyway ,heck even the 256 cache pin modded mobile jobs do the numbers on em,mghz for mghz anyways. faster pipelines see! regardless of chip ht is a rort ,makes an otherwise slick pc run like a slug. disable it and run single cpu format,any cpu that requires constant 10...

dells + ibm are good for playing dumb with newer spec cpus at times. i had a similar experience with a 5100laptop that could not run a speedstep mobile 3.06 ghz cpu at max speeds,so instead of ordering athe over expensive 3.06 non speedstep cpu,i simply pin modded a mobile 2.4/400 cpu to 3.2/533 spe...

thinkpad t40,41,42 proper dothan cpu support.

wierd,despite the latest 07 spec bios,it seems ibm are too naive to enable support for the dothan co stepping cpus (ie sl8XXX instead of only sl7xxx). this wierd situation allows the 1.7ghz co step cpu to function only at 600mghz speeds,yet when i decide to use cpu msr in xp,sure enough i can enable...

better off running the northwood cpu ,even the celeron northwood with 256l2 cache outperforms the crappy power hungry overheating 1mb prescotts mghz for mgz because of the significantly straighter +more efficient l2 quad pumping pipeline arrangment,and obvious 95% native programs that respond better...
