Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.mainboard.asus (More info?)


The motherbord have 1 Gig memory and a AMD 2700+ athlon processor.
With Bios set to default., and when installing winxp pro after 10 % copying files the system locked up.

After set APIC in PIC (bios) then xp installing.

What is wrong with this motherboard?

    nothing is wrong..technically. It is just a fluke that does occur randomly
    with some motherboards. Disabling APIC allows install?
    I happen to have a motherboard that will not allow an XP install with APIC
    enabled...have read extensively on is not a maker ,chipset nor model
    issue it just happens...have been trying for a month now for an RMA with
    Asus..but since it is not totally dead they do not want it back.Am thinking
    of changing motherboard companies if they do not RMA it.
