I have installed Windows 2000 Pro on a server with a Tyan Thunder K7X
(S2468) motherboard.
I keep getting a "Other PCI Bridge Device" message on startup. I
cannot find any chipset drivers on Tyan's site that fixes this
problem.
Anyone else run into this and found a solution?

In addition to all chipset, board drivers, are you sure everything
connected to the board has an up to date, Win2k Pro driver?

Found the solution - it was a power management driver. Found the right
driver on AMD's website

I am having the same problem. Would you post the link to that driver
please?

Thanks.

Well I found and installed it and it resolves the problem with the
device. Any idea what the device is supposed to do?

AFAIK, it's, uhm, power management. The "green" stuff -- hibernate,
standby, and like that. FAIK I figure anyway.

Thanks that's about what I figured too. Doesn't seem to be any effect
here (S2466) with it on or off that I can see anyway.

There are also options in the bios (s2462 anyway). I assume OS
environment software takes precedence -- in Windows there are options
from the Power button on the Screen Saver tab of Display Properties.

The various modes, on wake up, lock up my system -- I assume I have one
or more expansion cards that are not conforming to the standard.

Option settings haven't had any noticeable effect at all on my S2466. I
had been hoping that I'd get this windows2000 machine to power down on
exit which I never did get to work when it was on a S2460.
