No. You can install XP on a different drive and can have dual login while the system boots.

Upgrading my 128 RAM of KOB 810e FST MB


Looking at the manual for this motherboard your maximum ram is 512mb in two sticks of 256mb each. Speed rating is pc133 (maximum). You may struggle with the external hard drive as you only seem to have usb 1.1 and not usb 2.0

Bios


that is normal. Once you get that message, you can switch off your PC. To avoid that message, just keep the power button pressed for 3-4 seconds continuously when shutting down, and not a quick press.

Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6 installation problems


Hi speedfreak44, during the installation of windows one of the drivers did not install correctly & windows registry is messed up.
The blue screen is a typical response from windows. Even though you're windows installed SP2, there are another 89+ updates for SP2. (A reinstall with-out a format is not advised).
Suggest you enter you're bios & disable ACPI. This one I know for sure will show up in windows device manager as a PCI device with no name. Try again to boot windows. If it still fails to enter in standard mode than a complete re-install will be required including a format. Personally I do not use windows XP pro/home w/SP2 CD to perform the format, (After receiving a blue screen).
I have found it is 98% better to use the software tools, downloaded from the Mfg's web site for you're hard drive. Use the bootable software (On a floppy or CD), to format you're hard drive. Most Mfg's hard drive software will allow you to change the cluster size up. Windows standard uses a 4kb cluster size & you loose far more hard drive space. With a 16kb you loose only the file allocation or FAT, which is normal.
Than using the Win XP CD/SP2 install windows, clean.
(No need to format).
When finished installing windows, load the Gigabyte driver CD & install the chipset & other CD drivers. Turn on windows firewall & update windows SP2. (ASAP), (Save SP3 update for later).
It is in the updates of windows to iron out software & hardware driver updates. Do not install you're antivirus software until windows has finished updating its self & you install any hardware updates also through windows update. (Continue to leave the ACPI disabled in bios until updating is complete).
You can enable ACPI, antivirus software & printer software all.

You will find some needed software will install during windows update. Like; Quad Core processor update. With either home edition or pro it is advised to install .Net framework updates 1 at a time & only restart when prompted by windows. Other wise click the refresh button & continue windows updating. (You can save the .Net framework updates for last if you wish). You're video card may need .Net framework 2.0 or better for installation.
I am hell bent on installing windows once & correctly the first time. I understand you want to get this baby up & running but take the time & run the hard drive tools/utilities. (It's worth it)!

Good Luck speedfreak44!
If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.

Please let me know if this got you're system running without the blue screens?
One last item. It's also worth checking the dates on the Gigabyte CD to Gigabyte's web site before installing other drivers. Including the chipset drivers. You want to install the newest drivers the first time around. Here is the link to you're Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DQ6 motherboard main web site.

Motherboard upgrade??


Dear kaname,

Your computer can support Windows XP, which has better hardware support and compatibility with the 2003 Office suit. XP also updates your hardware automatically once you are on the internet. You might want to try this.

Keep in mind that the older the Operating System, the harder it is for Office suites to compat. Newer Operating systems have better support for your computing. If you don't have HDD problems, the BIOS should not prevent you from loading SP2 for Win2000.

Conclusion:

1. The SP2 Source Disk may have a problem
2. The Win 2000 you have already loaded may be missing components, preventing the SP2 to load.
2. Notton Antivirus versions and the 2003 office both reject Win 2000. They just don't like it; it's getting too old.

Get with it, Kaname!!!!
