Error Loading OS After Flash Bios Tags: Windows XP Motherboards Last response: April 27, 2004 9:25 AM in Motherboards Share stan April 21, 2004 2:50:50 AM Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.mainboard.shuttle (More info?) Flashed AB60N from AB60S00P to AB60S00W. "Error Loading Operating System." Okay when reflashed back to previous level. In another thread, no solution was found in a new install focusing on drive size problem, per the microsoft knowledge base article regarding this error. One of the posts suggested that XP should be set (before the flash) to generic ide drivers. Does that make any sense? How? P4, XP SP1, Western Digital 40Gig System Drive.

Just FYI, in case someone finds this thread looking for a similar problem. I couldn't find any solution investigating BIOS settings, active partition, MBR, etc. I finally flashed to each of the BIOS versions (the error occurred going from p to w, there was also a t and u).
