Question about ASUS Intel 845 Chipset P4B (P4B WOA) Motherboard
I have an Asus p4b motherboard with 1.5 gb of ram. Every time I try to install windows xp pro it runs through the setup, but when it tries to to initialize windows I get an error message "session3 initialization error".
It says it does not want to damage my hardware. Is this a bios problem?
I tried to find a bios update but I can't seem to find the correct version of my chipset and bios info. It is supposed to be an Intel 82845 chipset.
Before this I ran fdisk incorrectly and i need to properly partition and format my c: drive and d: drive (i have two hdd). I have an iso of xp pro with sp2 that is bootable but I can't get it to initialize. Help please!!!!
I had a simlar problen caused by a bad stick of ram memory.
Was able to remove the bad stick of memory(from DDR1) and insert the good stick(from "DDR2") into slot "DDR1".
If you can boot into bios, Enable the "POST" test Display and Disable the "quick boot". Now when you reboot you can see the results of the "POST" test. If there is bad memory you will see the "memory test failed".
The above may take 5 seconds longer to boot your system but you can see what is happening.

Sounds like a bad usb device or memory. try eliminating unnecessary things.
