Unable to run Auto Installation Support CD, or Boot System

After installing new motherboard, I am unable to get my computer to boot. I am also having trouble getting my computer to boot from the CD rom so that I can run my setup CD that came with my motherboard. BIOS settings all look correct, post beep, everything seems fine, but I can not get Windows XP to boot.I get to the point that I get the message to start normally, safe mode, ect. Then the computer restarts. I've been unable to boot from floppy & CD rom

    The motherboard is not the same as the original, and even though the CD rom, Floppy Drive, & Hard Drive are reconized at start up. I can't get the computer to boot from any of them. I have changed the boot order so that the computer will try to boot from the CD rom first, and the CD that came with the motherboard is an autorun CD. But I am still unable to get it to run so that I can install drives for the new motherboard.

Is the new motherboard the same model with the one you have replaced. If so, there should have no problem on it. If it is different model, then you have to reconfigure the software installed such as the driver. your new motherboard surely has the CD included where the necessary software should be installed. But, the problem is that you cannot get to the WindowsXP screen..

Windows XP CD is also bootable.. Now in the bios setup there is a portion there that tells about on how to boot whether in drive a, hard disk or cd. Choose CD and inser the bootable Windows XP. In that way you should be able to get to the XP screen. Of course, you have to restart it to make the necessary changes but before that make sure you have saved the changes youve made to the bios setup.

Now if youre able to go to the main screen, uninstall software that are with your old motherboard and install the new one.

Hope to solve your problem.

    that's weird, i havent experienced that yet. It should have work
    because you have already put in the priority to boot in CD. Try to
    disable other boot scheme like a: and hard drives.

    Lastly, are you sure that your CD drive detected during booting or is
    your CD itself malfunction.. I hope to solve your problem somehow.

Soyo sy-p4vgm motherboard unable to access BIOS setup menu

Offcourse! first of all insert CD into CD ROM then boot from cd. Select your CD drive like d: or e: or f: etc and then press enter. Now give a commond format c:/u/v and press enter. After the formating drive you can install windows 98 so now reboot your system again. Then boot from CD once again and choose your drive and install windows.

I am unable to install win Xp. when trying to boot from a cd to install fresh win xp ser. 2. system reboot after copying few installation files. The Bios set up shows the Sata Hard Drive but unable to load...

your HDD may be bad. I have had a number of HDD that appear fine in the BIOS but won't format either via the install disk or separately via a Linux boot disc.(You can somtimes hear them clicking on and off [seeking])

If you are mad keen on the drive, then D/L 'Hirens Boot Disc' and boot into the DOS mode (it also has a Mini XP mode).and use the HDD format utlity 'killdisk'. This will remove anything on the drive, format it and set it up ready for a fresh install.

If Hirens Boot Disk can't see the SATA drive then its stuffed.. for sure..

Boot from your WinXP CD and repair your existing installation. That is the component that controls security on your computer. When done with the repair and you can boot into your operating system again, you should do a full virus scan on the computer since there are several viruses that can cause this problem.

Unable to install XP sp2 on Intel D865GBF Motherboard

Maybe having trouble with a device, remove any pci or agp cards and usb devices, use built-in video until installed.

Set bios to defaults, make sure bios is latest version.

I have found this happens with a promise ultra-100tx2 and any nvidia video card.

May be a bad install cd, if you can boot it with a dos or win98 disk/CD, copy xp i386 folder to hard drive install from i386 folder on hdd by running winnt.exe

I have installed xpsp2 on about 10 d865gbf's and 2 days ago installed xp sp3 on one with no problems. may also be bad mobo.
