    I found some time ago that if you setup the operating system with any K6-2+/3/3+ with the onboard cache enabled this will happen. :(
    So if you did setup your OS while it was you are going to have to format your drive and disable the motherboard cache in the BIOS then rerun the setup again and things should then be sweet. ;)
    As you can see by my sig I run a similar setup and also have and an exact setup as yours here atm that I'm setting back up for someone. :thumb:
    For some (unknown to me) reason Windows setups do not like installing while a 3rd cache (as the CPU already has 2) is in operation. :?:

    interesting, however, i *refuse* to have to reinstall my OS!

    i've just done that recently and have no desire to do it again

    on another note: i have had the onboard cache disabled, and the peesee takes 12 minutes to get to the desktop - not an option
    also, my current mobo, an epox mvp3c-m, has onboard cache, and this same chip - and i have no problems with it, other than being a slow board (and basically non-overclockable)

    any other ideas? :eye: :confused:
