Not able to install XP on 845 zebronic motherboard Help


In order to install XP, check the following:

For most newer motherboards, your install CD must be Windows XP with Service Pack (SP) 2 or 3. If you have an older copy (SP1), it will lock up in a "Blue Screen of Death" during the install.

The install also requires a Microsoft version of Windows. If this board is a replacement in an existing PC and you are attempting to use a restore CD that came with the PC (marked Dell, HP or whatever brand), it won't install on anything other than the original motherboard.

If you have the Genuine Windows license code (usually located on a hologram sticker on the side of the PC case), you don't need to buy a new copy/license. Ask any of your geek-savvy friends if they can burn you a copy of XP with SP2 or SP3. This should work.

Finally, after installing you may get a message stating you've entered an invalid license code. If this happens, call the "800" number that pops up and explain you've replaced a defective motherboard - Microsoft should give you a new activation code at no charge.

Hope this helps.

Can't install windows XP on my KN8 ultra


I believe you are using a sata drive not ide, correct? The problem is that vista has built in drivers to support your boards sata/raid controller, winxp does not. to work around this you need to go here -
http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/download/download_driver_detail.php?pFILE_TYPE=Driver&pMAIN_TYPE=Motherboard&pTITLE_ON_SCREEN=KN8+Ultra&pSOCKET_TYPE=Socket%20939
Abit website. for your board - socket 939. KN8 ultra file called NVRaid Installation disk. click on picture, it will download the zip file. extract the files to an empty folder (create one). Then run RFDgen.exe program. It will create the floppy you will need. I hope you have a floppy drive, if not try a usb one. If it has a problem creating the floppy, copy the files in the folder floppydisk to your floppy. there is a readme.txt file in that folder as well that should help explain which option you should select when you install windows. So... once you have the floppy start your computer up with xp disk in and as the screen turns blue, you will see at the bottom of the screen a message - press F6 to select additional drivers. Do just that, a couple of times to be sure. then it changes to press F2, just sit back and wait. eventually it will come to a screen asking if you want to specify additional drivers. press S and the next screen will show you the drivers it found on the floppy. select the one for your configuration (can be changed in the bios). and then windows will load fine. this is necessary for all new systems with sata/raid installing xp. take care.

Hi Just installed a new Biostar MCP6P-M2 motherboard and cant the sound to work for the life of me.


I think you installed windows xp sp3, try re installing with windows xp sp2 because microsoft removed support for high definition audio in sp3 version of xp, if you dont want to re-install or you want to use sp3, download the high definition audio update (kb835221.exe).

No sound on MOBO


You didnt say what operating system you are using. If you are using XP you may need to update xp then reinstall. DirectX 9 has to be installed before most of the newer sound drivers will even try to install. If your copy is XP or XP sp1 you probably just need to udate dx9
