During the initial "DOS" based setup of Windows2000, it hangs at the point where is says "Starting Windows 2000"

Thought it may be a problem with ACPI so disabled ACPI detection in Win2000 setup, this didn't work, any ideas??

Do I need a BIOS update???

Very probably. If you have one of the earlier releases of the 8900P, then it might be dated sometime in 1998, whereas the following support sites: (preferred site)

...include BIOS updates as recent as mid-2000.

Note: the 8500P/8700P/8900P use the same BIOS.
