In fact I’m having trouble with basically any operating system I try.
System specs: Dual socket 7 build
To make it simple let’s talk about 2k/xp and I’ve tried many isos and different cds and versions (32 bit of course)
I’ve tried everything I can think of, if I run setup it usually gets anout half way through the blue part of setup and stalls around 50% but how it does it is weird. It starts off copying fast then slows down to a crawl and by the time it gets around 50% it stops and after a few hours of sitting there says can’t read the file and it is a different file every time again, tried multiple cds, multiple drives even used sata and pata doesn’t appear to be drive related or iso related
I’ve also tried several different controller cards and hard drive setups it seems to be board related, also tried removing all cards except video and mass storage and tried different video cards all no effect.
So something seems to be up with the board.
I’m wondering if it’s a bios setting
I tried single and dual processor at one point but I could try again. Even tried a k6 which worked but still no go.
Also thought it may be memory so I pulled out 4 of the 6 sicks and still no go.
Idk what to make of it..
Here are my bios screens. Any suggestions on bios settings to try?
