Question about Intel Motherboard

1 Answer

Can't install OS from disk.

According the to the disk that came with my motherboard, you can install Microsoft Windows XP or Vista.
However, I can't get the disk to work.
Currently it stops on Verifying DMI Pool Data... .
When I run the disk, it also only shows up with XpressRecovery2, which doesn't help, as Windows isn't installed yet.
The hard drive is brand new, as is the rest of the computer.
Does the disk actually have the OS on there or am I doing something wrong?

    So basically, the disk that comes with the motherboard does NOT have an OS on it?
    Well thanks. Looks like it's back to the store for me.

Windows operating system disks have an image on the non-data side that looks like a hologram. And they are clearly labeled Windows. If your disk does not look like that, it doesn't have a Windows operating system on it. Windows OS will cost you between $50 and $200 depending on source and version.

Should I remove Windows Vista on my Compaq Presario Laptop? It is installed as OE but I amm told Microsoft does not support it anymore


For the past few upgrade cycles I have upgraded by purchasing the best value new computers with the OS installed. I connect the old computers to the new via a home network. The newest has Win-7 and is much faster, however, the learning curve is steep getting all the old stuff to work. So for some stuff I still rely on the older machine. This has given me the best results.I still use Vista and XP, but if you feel compelled to upgrade do to security reason I would follow the following outline.
  1. Back up on an external USB drive all important documents. You must do this if not Murphy's rules will apply and it can be a train wreck!!
  2. Down load Acronis from Western Digital website. Make a Boot disk.
  3. Create a clone copy of your master C:/ drive on an external USB drive.
  4. Purchase a same or larger internal PC master C: drive "It must be a Western Digital for the free version of Acronis to work"
  5. Replace current drive with new.
  6. Using Acronis boot disk boot up and connect USB drive
  7. Clone new drive from USB with vista OS using the Acronis boot disk and confirm all is well
  8. You now have a way to go back. Your original drive still has the Vista OS with all your Junk and the new drive should have the same.
  9. Using the new drive go to the Microsoft website and go for OS seven. Keep your clone copy of the vista OS on the USB drive in case the seven blows-up during install.
  10. Retain the original C: drive with the vista OS in case you get into difficulty with the new drive.(mark the drive with date etc)
I have successfully done this for computers and keep a drive loaded with a known good OS for the day it all goes bad.

Sync-toy is the backup program that I use to keep everything up to date.

Hope this helps?

you get this message when there is some hardware which is incompatible or fails / crashes during the installation of OS since you have tried a different hard disk already it cannot be that so try with a different Ram or update bios / replace motherboard.

Check your system bios to ensure that ata is your chosen hard drive for installation. if you attempt to install on the mother boards default of ahci wich is windows vista or 7 default it will not work in order to install windows xp you must choose ata. as far as weather a 64 bit install is necessary, 32 bit will work on both but 64 bit windows must be installed on a 64 bit motherboard.

Just installed windows 7 have pentium 4 graphics only display in 640 by 480 when i was vista graphics was fine driver in windows 7 says got the most up to date driver ..fix probs now in windows 7 says i...


Then you need a graphics driver that will support Windows 7. If your motherboard onboard VGA is up to Windows Xp only and below then probably you will not able to use it to that kind of operating system like windows vista, and 7. My suggestion is that you buy a graphics card that will run and support windows vista and windows 7.

Upgrading of OS from Windows XP to Windows Vista


I looked up your motherboard and found some posts that suggest that the onboard VGA may be the problem you're having with Vista - using an another video card will probably allow you to install and operate Vista on your machine.

I installed windows 7 os and my mother board drivers not support that os.help me.my mother board is asus p5rd1-vm. pentium 4 processor 512 ram


Come back on XP or Vista but XP works better.There is no driver for W7 yet.Motherboards manufacturers will provide drivers for W7 when Microsoft will announce that the system(W7) is ready to be sell....Windows 7 is still beta! If Microsoft still provide "UP DATE" for XP why you want to install other OS?

The Blue Screen of Death (also known as a stop error, BSOD, bluescreen, or Blue Screen of Doom) is an error screen displayed by some operating systems, most notably Microsoft Windows, after encountering a critical system error which can cause the system to shut down, to prevent damage.
Bluescreens on NT-based Windows systems can be caused by poorly written device drivers or malfunctioning hardware. In the Win9x era, incompatible DLLs or bugs in the kernel of the operating system could also cause bluescreens.
Bluescreens can also be caused by physical faults such as faulty memory, power supply issues, overheating of components, or hardware running beyond its specification limits. Bluescreens have been present in all Windows-based operating systems since Windows 3.1; earlier, OS/2 and MS-DOS suffered the Black Screen of Death, and early builds of Windows Vista displayed the Red Screen of Death after a boot loader error.

I hope it helps!!!

Graphics(display) Driver


According to Intel's website, if they don't have a driver posted on their website for your product, then you can use the Windows XP driver for you graphics card.
Good luck!
