    I have a Tyan Thunder K8WE / S2895 and just upgraded the BIOS to
    the lastest version 1.04

    Now the BIOS hangs up during booting, and it says:

    "out of space for Option ROMs!"

    what does this mean?

    I disabled a couple of on-board devices (e.g. SCSI) and it still gives
    this error message..

    any ideas, tips?

    Hallo Wolfgang,

    yes, I did - that's what caused this problem to re-appear.
    I had it fixed in my old BIOS 1.03 setup, but that was earsed
    when I upgraded the BIOS to 1.04 - so it re-appeared.

    I talked to Tyan today, and they suggested to:

    - switch off the Option ROM error reporting
    - disable any unused on-board devices such
    as MAC OPSCAN, SCSI, etc..

    For LINUX they also suggest to:

    - switch OS type to LINUX on the main BIOS page
    - set MTRR to discrete
    - enable the IOMMU
    - set the memory hole to hardware

    Looks like this solved the problem!
