Postby ElDavo » 2018-11-17 @ 15:02

Hi all , I need some help this thing is driving me mad...

I'm trying to install windows 2000 on a new socket 462 athlon system I am building and I keep getting the error message 'line xxxx of the inf file i386 txtsetup.sif is invalid' I get the same from using my windows Xp disc. I've tried using different ram and 3 different cd/dvd drives and still no luck :(

Any ideas?

I've just got it to work, I turned the ram speed off of Auto and set it to 133mhz and it worked. It's a Msi 7061 ver1.0 now the quest for drivers begins :| no pci cards (yet)

I've only tried it on Windows 2000 sp4 as that is the Os I want to use for this computer. It is set to auto on the motherboard (with the other option being off) It shows in device manager as working.

All the drivers say they are for w2k so I don't think there is a compatibility problem there, maybe the sound chip is just dead :(

I tested it with a soundblaster live from another pc and it works fine so I've now ordered another soundblaster for it :)
