Question about ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe Motherboard
This is the second A8N32 that I have received (RMA'd the first). Both have had similar problems where we can't install Windows XP. We either get write errors or it hangs during the install. Have swapped out the CPU, Hard drive, CD/DVD, and Win XP disk - all to no avail. All ideas and help would be appreciated!
Over the years I?ve had odd installation problems like this caused by: -defective or incorrectly configured hard drives being written to. -defective or incorrectly configured optical drives copied from. -problem RAM or processors. -an older BIOS that needs to be updated. -unresolved motherboard issues. I?ve generally ignored Microsoft?s hardware compatibility listing when it comes to general purpose workstations; however, I have had several occasions when non-certified hardware simply not work. I poked around Asus?s web site and noted that there are no Vista drivers or certifications listed for this model. If you have gone through and eliminated the hardware as a source of the problem you may in the end have to forgo the upgrade. For this very reason I have decided not to upgrade any of our workstations to Vista, not even the newer ones.
