    I have a FIC az11ea (VIA KT133a), with AMD Athlon 1 GHz processor, running 384 SDRAM PC 133, which refuses to install windows XP (latest version), from upgrade or clean install. Has anyone encountered this problem, or does anyone have a solution to this problem. I am currently running windows ME.

    When I try to instal, I have success loading inital files, but have no joy rebooting. Inital boot up screen appears, but fades to black and hangs..... indiffinetly!!

    I know how u feel - I'm having a simmilar problem

    things to try

    1. Disable virus checking in bios
    2. Discable acpi (power managment)
    3. Upgrade bios
    4. Remove all cards except video & HD and test
    5. try with a single stick of ram
    6. Low level format of HD

    All of the above methods have been known to get the install working

    (but none of em work on my dad's pc)

    number 3 has worked for me several times on different pc's

    Yeah, I had the BIOS problem as well, couldn't upgrade until I upgraded my BIOS version, all fixed now though.

    its most likely the bios, some older ones might not support it, funny how my mobo w/k62 300 works fine with xp....then again, the bios was made in like 99..lol

    I think the BIOS update was about the only thing we didn't try Phil - Give that a go!

    Have ya's done the "Press F5" at the "press F6" screen? maybe try loading as standard PC would stop it from maybe creating an IRQ/resource issue...just a thought
