Plug and Play Aware OS

This setting is shown on only some BIOSes. If present, enabling this tells the BIOS that you are using an operating system that supports the Plug and Play specification (such as Windows 95). When enabled, the BIOS will look for and initialize any Plug and Play cards in the system. Enable the setting if using Windows 95 or another Plug and Play compatible OS. The default is normally "Disabled".

Note: Some BIOSes will perform the initialization of Plug and Play cards automatically regardless of the operating system being used, and will thus not have this setting. Some will work fine with Plug and Play regardless of how this option is set. However, on some systems that have this setting, Plug and Play may not function properly if the setting is disabled.
