Question about Foxconn P9657AA-8EKRS2H (6938279104065) Motherboard
Foxconn p9657aa-8ekrs2h - 3yrs old - original bios 1.06.53 - intel pentium e6600, 2x 1GB memory. Running XP. Passes w7 suitability test
Repeated failure in loading W 7 HP . Tried on a partition on existing HD . Tried new 1Tb HD, with existing HDs disconnected. Tried bootable copy of dvd. Tried three different optical drives. Tried disconnecting everything except KB, mouse, screen, HD and optical drive.Tried full mem test - no problems reported
Process generally fails with a freeze part way through file expansion stage - not always in the same place. Have twice got right through this stage, but never got through to full installation.
Foxconn don't have this board on their list of their Windows 7 supported chipsets (which is hardly surprising), but as you state all your individual components should be perfectly OK with Windows 7 .
I suggest you flash the Bios because Foxconn had to produce a new Bios for Vista in order for that OS to run correctly.
Best of luck.
