You are not using enough ram for XP or 2000 in my opinion. I would up the RAM to at least 1 Gig and then try the install again. XP uses more resources than 98.

Thanks for using FixYa, I hope this helps.

When i start Axis and Allies the screen flashes for about 15 seconds and then an error screen comes up that says that "the game tried to turn the resolution to 1024/768 but couldn't so it changed it back...


When I try to play Axis and Allies cd-rom '98 it's like the screen is too small for the game because there is no buttons or anything that allows me to end my turn. My monitor is pretty big too.

If you have an onboard video card, that won't be enough to run the game. Try updating your graphics card. Here are the requirements to successfully run the game: suggested system requirements: Pentium III 1 GHz, 256 MB RAM, graphic card 32MB (GeForce 2 or better), 1.2 GB HDD, Windows 2000/XP

I had the same problem with an Intellistation 6868 for years. It just wouldn't load XP but ran fine on Windows 2000 SP4. I tried 3 different XP Installation CD's with no luck. After several attempts at installing XP I bought a clean XP Upgrade from ebay.

It took me 3 goes to install it but eventually I got it in there. If you can get XP to start on the 6868 press F8 and start it in safe mode first then when it's booted fully, shut it down and and then start it clean again. It worked for me. I've been running it for 5 months now and it's fine.

I couldn't get it to work at all on the 6868's onboard IDE so I installed a PCI Raid Card and it boots fine on that.

System:
IBM 6868 52A M-Pro Intellistation
2 x Intel P3 866 CPU's 256 mb cache
2 GB ECC RD Ram
2 x Seagate 320 GB 8MB Cache HDD on a Sunix ATA133 PCI Raid Card
2 x Seagate 10000 rpm SCSI HDD on Adaptec Raid Card
ATI 9520 AGP 128mb Graphics

Takes long time to start up


For XP, it is recomended to have at least 1 GB of RAM to run it properly. It will run with a minimum of 512 MB of RAM, but very slow.
