Can't load OS on system with new motherboard/CPI
Posted on 2003-11-18
I just purchase a new motherboard (Soyo SY-K7VTA Pro) with a AMD AthlonXP 1200 chip. I put 2 256 PC133 SIMMS in it. I then try to load Windows 2000 pro from CD onto my harddrive. It goes through the format, and as it is copying the file, I will get messages like "setup cannot copy the file: cdonts.dll". I have tried this with different hard drives, differrent CD drives, different power supplies, and different OS's (win 2K, win2000 server, win2000sbs). All get to the same spot and have errors - all be it they might be on different files.
When the same drives are used on a celeron 333 machine, it loads fine.
