I installed a fresh copy of windows xp and on its first boot the display was at low res with 8 bit color and zero options to change it. The monitor was not in the monitor list.
The system can run linux and all the graphics are fine until after the windows loading bar, then I just get a black screen, no curser. I tried running in vga mode with the same result, safe mode freezes at mup.sys. Any ideas what's going on?
