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

22 October 2005 - 02:02 AM

I have using 8/15 bios for some time, and apart from the 216 FSB, 5xHT and the 4GB memory problemsit has been fine.

I have a fully working and installed system (Windows XP Pro SP2), I upgrade the bios to 8/24. Everthing worked well.

I then purchased Windows Pro 64 and decided to do an install. I created the RAID drivers floppy disk, and started to install. The install process managed to get thought to the saving files and the system rebooted. No message, just a reboot.

Oh well, maybe its part of the install procedure. Nope. Windows XP Pro 64 starts to load and then BSOD and reboots. I tried this with several different version of the Nvidia RAID drivers, but still the same.

So, I tried to re-install XP Pro Sp2, exactly te same problems. Saving files page, reboot. BSOD on reboot.

Downgrade the bios to 8/15, everything works and Installs OK

Any ideas?

I am not overclocking anything.
