Question about Tyan Tomcat K8E Motherboard
Hi everyone i am trying to build a file server with these specification: Tyan s2865 MB Amd 64 3800 processor 2 GB Crucial ddr 400Mhz ECC 2 500 Gb Sata drives and of course a floppy drive and a dvd drive. my problem is that i cannot install any Win based OS, what happens is that after the normal boot, the win installation ( i have tried the win 2003 server which i need, and then also the XP to see if it would have worked)the win installation stops as soon as it is starting to copy the files on the Hdd. It reboots and the problem comes back everytime i try to install any OS win based. Any suggestion?
My first course of action would be to isolate the problem. So what i would do is un hook one of the 500 gb Sata drives. Then try to install on one. Once you get it up and running hook the second one up and let windows find it. Also another note of thumb is make sure you have not over exceeded your ram slot capabilities. Find the techical manual on the manufactures web site. Each ram slot has a max amount and speed. If you exceed these it can cause windows programs to halt. I do think that if you isolate down to one sata drive install your os then add your second Sata you should be good to go. If you are still having problems feel free to contact me. TechWizard
