Question about MSI KM4M-V Motherboard
I have an MSI KM4M-V KM266-8237 motherboard with an 2Ghz AMD Sempron, 1 gig of RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce 5500 OC 256MB AGP 4X video card. Sound, LAN, etc. are onboard. I'm trying to install Windows 7 and every time the computer loads Windows off of the installation DVD, it gives me an error before ever getting to a GUI. The error says "classpnp.sys" cannot be found or loaded.
In searching, I've found that this might be due to the BIOS settings that the NVIDIA installation guide recommends, specifically a setting that recommends turning OFF a PnP aware OS and how this might conflict with IRQ setting. However, I never found that setting in the Phoenix BIOS so I never changed it. I'm running version "6.00PG" dated 7/28/2004 and haven't found any BIOS updates via the MSI Live Update utility.
Am I on the right path or way off in trying to get Windows 7 installed?
Id say with those specs Id be sticking to XP mate , win 7 like vista munches resources and without them it can be a pain
it maybe time to shout your self an upgrade , plenty of bargains at the moment.
hope this helped
