Problem

Attempting to set a BIOS password which has a percentage symbol (%) as the first character causes the BIOS to lock up and require a system reboot.

Cause

Early BIOS versions for this product contained code which handled percentage symbols incorrectly.

Resolution

Update the system to the latest Stone production BIOS which is available from the Stone knowledge base, please review the link at the bottom of this article to obtain the BIOS file. BIOS 1.20 and newer solves this problem.
