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

Re: Unable to run Auto Installation Support CD, or Boot...

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.

Motherboard for hp pavilion xt963 is there away to tell if its bad

It's very possible that your hard drive is dead. If you get a prompt when booting it such as F1 then the motherboard is working (so far), therefore it means the BIOS is ok and also that your CPU is ok if not nothing will show on your screen. If pressing F1 gives you boot options then select CD. If it won't boot from your CD force it by actually going into BIOS setup and selecting CD as primary boot drive then press F10 to save. (if BIOS setup options don't show when booting try pressing F10 or F8 and any other function keys after F1.
Make sure you have the installation disk. If the PC still doesn't boot or detect it you should try another CD/DVD drive, yours might be bad or buy or borrow a DVD/USB external drive and select it as boot drive in BIOS. Often I've seen that when booting if either the hard drive is bad or your operating system is corrupted it will prompt F1 because it cannot detect either. If OS is corrupted you will be unable to get to safe mode especially if the hard drive is bad, the recovery partition is on that hard drive and safe mode is a Windows program not BIOS.
After you've tried connecting a different CD drive to install your OS you should be able to at least see the Windows installation or whatever operating system you use asking to begin installing. If the installation fails then we move on to the hard drive; take it out and put a new one then try again.
If none of these help then there might be a circuit shorted out on the motherboard which can cause some things to work but not others although this is rare. Lastly I don't know what you meant by USB in your question because unless you have a bootable USB drive the system isn't going to do anything with it anyway.
By the way someone here mentioned RAM memory. BIOS should still show even if your memory is gone but some systems are quirky so this needs to be tested as well. I could go further if you had posted your system's specifications such as how many sticks of RAM you're using. Try dusting off your the inside of your computer with compressed air. Dust acumulation tends to cause weird behavior on a computer.

I am unable to install windows xp on asus p5rd1-vm motherboard when boot from xp cd i am getting bsod error 0x0000007b i m thinking this is bcoz of some sata drivers problem but i m unable to get better...

Hi, here you can find drivers and a manual:

Please select your operating system.

Then select the driver and click on global for download.

The driver needs to be unziped before installation.

Here is a free unzip program:

Just click on exe for download.

Check your windows disk for damage or dirt.

And check the bios for faulty settings
read about that in the manual.

CPU: intel core i3 550, MB: Inel DH55TC, Ram: Transcend: 2GB 1333Mhz, SMPS: 550 Watt. After first installation, this system ran for 3 months without any problems, suddenly, it became dead and assuming it...

How many years do you own that desktop computer? You have a problem with your Ram: Transcend: 2GB 1333 Mhz

Ram is always responsible to boot and run all system required by your computer
A defect ram cannot boot or not properly run application e.g.
Power-On-Self-Test (start up of your computer)
Booting your Operating System
Running your Application like Microsoft office , Photoshop and so on

Replace your Ram

System unable to boot and showing signs of motherboard audio device conflicts(device type realtek)

hi iasmeer,

-to just boot up without any sound device,
remove any soundcards from the PCI- slots, disable the onboard sound device in the BIOS!
It looks like you are facing IRQ conflicts, your computer cannot handle all the hardware devices installed.
to solve this,
in BIOS set IRQ management so that the BIOS handles the PCI devices(set everything to auto),
disable the plug'n'play-operation system option to prevent windows from doing the same thing again( it'll then just take the IRQ information provided by the BIOS)
now enable the onboard sound device and make sure you have all
the drivers for the onboard devices(sound, LAN-card etc.) fitting your operation system on CD or thumb-drive, boot up and install the drivers.
Restart and by chance everthing isO.K. by now.

if not, please come back with more information on the sound device(onboard or not) and the winversion, so we perhaps can find you the appropriate driver(if you don't have it on the CD you purchased together with the mainboard..?)

Good luck

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.
2nd way, If everything could not be possible then you should boot from CD again then select your CD drive and type a command fdisk and press y or enter 2 times. Now you choose 4 number and press enter and check the drive format if it is not FAT32 its mean that you should press 3 and then press 4 and now press enter then press escape. Then press three button at a time Ctrl+Alt+Del now your system will reboot now once again Boot from CD and choose CD drive and type fdisk and choose 1 then choose1 and now press enter and once again press three button at a time Ctrl+Alt+Del now your system will reboot. Once again boot from CD and select your CD drive and now you can install windows 98 now 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.
Thank You

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..

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.

I am not able to boot from cdrom of my system

Enter pc bios. can you see your cdrom listed in the MAIN menue? Goto Boot. Set your cdrom to first boot device.
Make sure you have a bootable CD in the cdrom. Still can't boot to the cdrom? Think about swapping it out or getting a new one.
