In Topic: Can install Windows XP Pro 32 or 64bit using Bios 8/24

24 October 2005 - 10:13 AM

Thanks for the replys.


I finally managed to install XP64 by

1. Downloading a new RAID driver disk from planetamd64.com
2. Running at T2, T1 worked under XP32, but not XP64
3. Take 2 of my raptors out, back to a 2 disk array :-(

I will contact Holland in the morning. I have only had the board for a week. I am very miffed.

"Oh also the X2 processor on the NF3 U-D does not like cool and quiet. No idea when or if that can be fixed. "

So DFI advertise the X2 compatablility and the Cool 'n Quiet but yet it does not work. That is false advertising!

So,

What can I do?

I took 2 of the modules out. Enabeled the setting. System booted.

It tried to set my PCU speed to 268, I have to change that back.

Put the other 2 modules back in. Still only 3GB.

I know its not your fault, and you are trying to help, but I feel that everyone is blaming eveyone else. The BIOS/board/CPU has faults/compatability problems and I am getting very peeved. If I did not have an AGP card I would have purchased a NF4 MB.

BTW, I have also tried 2 1GB (ebuyer) unbranded memory modules, they pass memtest 86+ 1.60 on their own, but even using them I still only get 3GB of memory.

I also tried using the 2x512MB modules that are in my Wifes machine, the systems is fine with 3GB 2x1GB + 2x512MB

All modules are dual sided, and are configured to run at 200. I have also tried running the modules at 133 and 166 just in case that might have fixed the problem.

I forgot to add, then when I set the PCI MMIO option the system would not post.

I have to clear my CMOS. Still only 3GB.
