Hello!

I have a Fujitsu-Siemens Scenic 300 desktop (with a mobo D1451). It's a small form-factor PC, and very silent and stable, so i decided to make it a firewall.
The problem is, there's only 3 PCI bus on the mobo, and i have to use it all.
There's an onboard NIC, and i want to install another 3 NIC card. One is a simple realtek8139, but the another 2 have 4-4 NIC ports on it. So the PC has 10 NIC ports in the end. Looks like it's a bit too much for the mobo, when i reboot, i get this message:
-----------------------
System configuration data updated
ERROR
System configuration data read error
-----------------------

When i set the "Reset configuration data" to "Yes" in BIOS, at next reboot everything looks fine, firewall software boots normally, and i can see all the interfaces (pfSense). But at next reboot it's stops again.
The bios is here:

Is there any way to force the reset escd at every reboot? Or something easy way to fix this?
thx
