I've finally built a Super Socket 7 machine with the following specs:
- AMD K6-3+ 400MHz;
- 2x128 MB PC-133 RAM;
- Lucky Star 5MVP3 rev 4.0 motherboard;
- 80GB HDD;
- Voodoo 3 3000/AGP;
- Sound Blaster 16 CT2230 with Dreamblaster X2;
- 3COM NIC;
- 40x CD-RW drive.
There is a BIOS patch for this motherboard on an unofficial K6 list, so I've installed it. The POST now shows me "AMD K6-3 400" (no mention of plus, though). The HDD is detected correctly.
I then proceed to install Windows. I use a single partition on my disk, go through all the steps (including the parts where I enter the serial code and the system tries to detect all hardware). However, first boot always hangs at logo screen. The animation goes for a little while and then everything just freezes — no disk activity, no nothing. I tried installation several times — it's always the same. Could this be some sort of a hardware problem?
