      Intel Pentium 4 and Celeron processor errata: Critical BIOS update for select NetVista, ThinkCentre, and ThinkPad systems

      Symptom
      BIOS flash image updates have been released that contain an Intel errata patch for the microprocessor firmware. It addresses a potential issue which might cause a system to exhibit erratic behavior such as a system hang, reboot, blue screen, or Kernel Panic (Linux), and may also cause in-progress system operations (e.g., file, I/O) to fail. The possibility of this behavior is believed to be limited, but it is strongly recommended that customers install this update as soon as possible to prevent the possibility of the issues listed. Intel provides more information at the following URLs:
