Im trying to install Windows server 2003 on a machine.
pci 64mb graphics card
40 gb seagate hd
When installing, it goes through the initial drivers install, raid if needed, etc...
It then freezes when this is displayed on the bottom right of the screen.
"setup is starting windows"
I can hear the hd stop spinning, and the cdrom stops.
So far this is what i have done.
- Tested memory in different machine, as well as use known working memory in problem machine.
- Tested HD in another machine.
- Installed windows 2003 server on different machine.
- Ran video card in other machine fine.
- Disable System cache
- Disable video shadowing
- Adjust bios date
The motherboard is a cheap *** ECS board. PT800CE-A.
Im going to flash the bios right now, hope that works. Anyone have any suggestions?
The mobo and cpu are brand new, retail.
