NMI switch reboots system with SoftICE installed

0 Likes

Problem:

When Soft-ICE Windows is loaded, an NMI switch causes the system to reboot.

Resolution:

This has only been seen on certain hardware configurations

  when the NMI keyword is in WINICE.DAT.  When this keyword is present,

  Soft-ICE hooks INT 2.  When the NMI is hit, Soft-ICE gets control and

  tries to do some I/O to clear the NMI.  This can cause problems

  including the reboot.  The workaround is to remove the NMI keyword

  and simply set a BPINT 02 inside Soft-ICE.
