|Hope someone here can shed some light on this. |
I tried to install Windows 7 beta in the past and got BSOD at the final stage. Tested the RAM with memtest86 and got no errors.
I recently tried again with RC1. Running SATA II drives. Tried with and without supplying SATA drivers at the beginning.
I have flashed the BIOS to the latest version. Stripped the machine down to the basics. Using onboard video, sound & Lan. Nothing else connected. Tried disconnecting extra drives, cards, USB stuff. Pulled half the RAM. Still get the same result.
One other problem that may be related is that I can't get a SATA burner to work. BIOS recognizes it and so does WinXP but if I try to read a CDR it locks up the computer. Have tried 2 new SATA burners.
I thought I had read about some chip sets having issues with SATA optical drives so didn't think too much about that.
The Foxxconn MB has 939 socket, 6150aMB & 430a SB. Even tried under clocking the DDR400 to 333. I think that covers it for now.
