Xp restarts after

Have two PIII 866 installed on an abit vp6. During POST, drive shows. But during OS load the xp logo is never seen, only the -last known good, start normally, etc screen. But any of these choices causes a reboot. The hard drives are ibm deskstars 18GB.

The motherboard has not been updated since 2001 and I can't find an BIOS file on abit's website (there's a link to it but it's dead). Could it be that this version does not support XP?

I cannot find the flash image for the BIOS on abit's website. There is a link under the vp133 apollo chipset and socket 370 but it is dead. Hard drives work fine in other computer.

    I tried swapping the hard drive out to another computer and the OS, hard drive and cables seem to work fine. The other computer has a supermicro P6SBA motherboard. Again, the OS loads fine on a supermicro P6SBA but restarts at the 'last known good' screen on an abit VP6. I only mentioned XP because someone told me that the BIOS may be to old to support it (circa 1999).

My dasktop doesn't completely load windows xp setup


hi, did you run the upgrade adviser, before running xp set up? this will tell you any upgrades or possible problems you may have. it is probably a hardware compatibility, as the aging p3 systems would have. if you can, go back with the older operating system, then run upgrade adviser, you may be able to correct he issue, i still have a pentium 2 450,that i put xp on years ago-it runs great for a p2-so it is not impossible to do.also did you do a quick or full format in the fat or ntfs, do full, and try the fat format for that p3. hope this helps you, good luck! need more help post again.

Gateway Tablet, BSOD unmountable_boot_volume


you have to go to gateway and download the driver for the SATA controller then save it to floppy or cd then hit F6 durning install then it will ask you for the driver. This Tablet will not see a non-gateway cd if you have the one that came with the tablet then you are good, but if not you will need to do this for the current drive or if yo upgrade to newer drive. Hope this get you started, I had this same problem and I thought it was my motherboard was bad because it would not see the hard drive during installation. This fixed my issue with the drive not being seen during installation of the OS.
