Since the BTX is the BooT eXtender, what brings I think a 16-bit
real-mode BIOS/POST to a 32-bit (or 64-bit?) protected operating
system, I would start looking at BIOS options.

Some BIOSes have a windows mentality and don't let you tweak much.
Retail boards you buy off the shelf are typically pretty good to let
you tweak lots of options.

I'd also check for a BIOS update.
