So long story short I came across an almost new looking Soyo Dragon SY-P4I865PE Plus board and had the bright idea to build a 2003 PC around it. The problem is I get a blue screen every time I attempt to install Windows XP or even Windows 2k. The error always varies and when it happens varies though installation though it never gets very far past the early stages of installation or formatting the hard drive to NTFS format. I've tried disabling all but the most basic functions in the BIOS, cut back my hardware to the very minimum, tried different RAM, different installation CDs, different video cards (AGP and PCI) and several different hard drives but I've had the same issue. I'm starting to think it's the board itself but it looks immaculate. The only thing I can guess at this point is I am running the early BIOS version and try updating it. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find a link to a BIOS update that actually works. i THINK the latest BIOS is version 2aa5 or 2aa4 but every link I try just tries to pull from the defunct Soyo site and fails.
