Question about Tyan Tomcat K8E Motherboard

Cannot install any Windows OS system

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?

    Hi techwizard,
    Thank you very much for your fast response....
    I have to tell you that at the end i solved the problem; it was not anything like Hard drives also if as you explained it to me it could also have worked.
    The problem is that also if the MB is supporting ECC RAM it looks like at the end it doesn't.
    I've tried to change the RAM and put some non ECC on it and......
    IT WORKS...!!!

    Thank you again for your help...

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

Need scsi/raid drivers on floppy to install winxp pro (at f6 prompt)


Hello the drivers can be downloaded here:

http://www.tyan.com/support_download_drivers.aspx?model=S.S2865

You need to unzip the file before you install the driver.
It should not be nessesary to install drivers before installing the windows system.
Check your bios boot settings to boot from the cdrom or dvd drive.
The cd or dvd drive must be the first boot device in order to boot from the windows disk.
Install windows with only one harddrive.
You can also add a harddrive later, when the installation is done and all drivers is installed.

Good luck

Check with some quality video card companies to see which cards are compatible with your motherboard. You might find you can't get a very good quality card or maybe you might find some quality cards you can install yourself. Its only a couple of screws. Mostly is it compatible with your motherboard.
