I am upgrading my network getting ready for Windows 2003. I bought a few Intel S875WP1-E motherboards as a hardware upgrade. I need to use NT untill my budget allows purchasing new software. During the install of NT I get vertical blue lines durning the initial copying of drivers and the system reboots. I assume there is a compatability problem between NT and the Intel 875 chipset or the rageII graphics chip. I am using a copy of NT with only SP1 on the disk. What can I do to get the install to finish?

NT will not support the hyperthreading processer I bought. The cpu is going back for a non hyperthreading unit.

Have you tried disabling hyperthreading in BIOS?

I did disable the hyperthreading but NT will not run on the cpu.

I went with a non hyperthreading unit and installed NT on an older machine added the service packs and transferred the hard drive to the new system. After loading the drivers for video and networking it works great! I guess it needed SP6a to work with the new motherboards.
