I have an old Unika computer, with the following BIOS -

Award Modular Bios v4.51PG,
plus an Award Plug & Play Bios Extension version 1.0A

Motherboard is M5ALC (whatever that means)

The computer will not boot properly - it gets part-way through start-up, and stops with the error message as follows -

"Automatic Skip Driver
Windows stopped responding while trying to perform one of the following tasks - Calling a PnPBIOS=>Get Statically Allocated Resource Information
The reference number for this problem is -
OA 00 00 00 98 03 FO 00
To solve this problem you should contact your computer manufacturer"

I tried to contact Unika, they are French and are un-contactable. I tried Phoenix Technologies, and they said a BIOS upgrade is available that might solve the problem, but they never called back! They do not respond to my e-mails!!

What can I do?
