What disc? What OS?
Win vista ultimate disc. It only blue screens out with that perticular disc. The other win vista disc I have (got from you) works fine and the win 8 disc installs fine. I only have 1 key for win vista home premium. I have a unused win vista ultimate key. I am going to try and burn another win ultimate disc and see how it goes.
On a side note win 8 is weird. Metro, me don't like right now. It is a learning curve thats for sure.
This site links to the digital river downloads for Vista, 7, Office, etc... check it out
t is pretty friggn' funny though. Starts booting from disc, white line moving across bottom of screen, completes that. Goes to move to the first screen of install, bam bsod. . You at Microsoft they where like when they where able to incorporate the bsod right there.
Mad_Shot, I just sent you a PM regarding this issue bro.
Thanks, but that's weird. You blew me away on gflops. I don't get it.
I'm going to go with the 5520 chipset just for yuks. It's an extra $80 or so but fuck it. This assumes that paypal frees up my cash before the chips get sold. I made an offer on them which the guy accepted but then I tried to move some money around and . . . oh shit. It's a long story. I basically had to get an anal probe to prove to paypal I actually own the accounts I'm trying to use. I should find out by Monday at the latest if they have deigned to give me access to my own damned money.
Oh that must be agonizing!
Well there is certainly some problem there and the only way to find out is to get the stop code. Have you and stinger solved it yet?
@Stinger, I sent you a pm update.
Main rig is back up crunching wise, still have a ton of stuff to install, but I'll get that sorted this weekend.
I have a new case on the way for the Socket 775 P4. An Antec Three Hundred Two. Should be a nice change. Need to grab a better PSU for it as well as a video card. But we'll get to that next week
NewEgg is advertising the Corsair CX430v2 @ $36.99 ($16.99 after rebate) on their weekend specials
I might just grab that. The PSU I have now works for it, if I get a 4/8 pin extension. (Cables aren't long enough for bottom mounted PSU case.)
I believe the problem is with the disc, as I can install Win 8 and Win vista home from other disc without issues. Just that disc is acting up. But I have installed from that disc a few weeks ago testing it without issue on my x6.
The stop code is 0x0000007E and says something about APIC. WHere is blue screens is right after the initail boot screen off the dvd. The first screen you get has the white bar. It when it movers from that to the windows is starting screen. The one wiht the small bar the has the blocks that move back and forth. It blue screens just when you bearly see that screen.
Ok just to update this post, I am not shipping the Transformer 4 to Jr, I just went ahead and bought him a Hyper 212+ for his H50, So now all I have to do is switch cases are work and be done with it. Then I can get the 6 core in a case before my wife goes crazy!
nice to hear you guys getting things rollin'. I'm trying to get my 2nd cruncher to POST right now, so agonizing!
Yea I have 4 total and if I didn't do something quick I was afraid I would fry the 940BE due to heat. I may shut it down until the cooler arrives. I also need to get the 6 core in a case. My wife was cool with it on a test bench but due to this bench being in our living room, it does not look the greatest HAHA.
I also need to get windows 7 X64 on the dual core to get the extra 10%. every little bit counts.
Sure does, i have an X3 I just can't get to POST. Been at it for like a month
Well let me know is you need anything! I will always be willing to help.
Yup... and Norton's dominators are shipped so he'll have another cruncher up and running soon after Tuesday.
I expect to have Stinger's payment in his hands by next week then all I got to do is buy a case, CPU, video card and ram, then I'll be pushing out some higher numbers as well!
I hope you can get yours to post soon CP.
Got it to POST, but now I just realized I don't have any SATA HDD's and this board does not have an IDE connector. Shit!
I can grab one from work if you need one badly. Won't be the biggest in the world but it will work. You pay shipping naturally.
Or you can use a DSL (damn small linux) disc and just run in on ram for now
only if you can, don't get yourself in trouble. Just let me know how much you want for the shipping. ...and as long as I can put windows on it I'm good
It'll be an old used drive, which we take home all the time. 80gb Seagate work?
