I had this problem with SGS 486DX66 and OPTI chipset. Tried AMI-BIOS changes,
and these made no difference. The only solution that worked for me was to change a
jumper on the motherboard. This jumper was configured for a 'Cyrix' CPU, and I
changed it to 'Intel'. This change seems to have had no other effect other than to
fix the rebooting problems.

As an aside, does anybody know if the SGS is compatible with the 486-S feature that
I can also enable on my motherboard?
