I just got a new Aus A8V Deluxe, AMD 64 3000+, and two 512 megs of Muskin memory to upgrade my existing computer.
I've got some problems now, and I'm out of ideas on how to fix them.
I get 2 messages when I boot up:
No external Fasttrack found, and No Bios Installed.
So, I call up Asus late Friday night, and they say it's supposed to happen, because it's a 64 bit chip. I guess I get that fixed after I install Asus's software.
The No Bios installed doesn't make sense, because it has a bios, and I've been using to set up boot orders, and the time, etc.
So, I set the CD-roms to boot first, so I can run Windows or the Asus software immediatly, but the CD-roms are being skipped straight to the hard drives. Then I decided to boot from the floopy first, and manually switch over to the CD-roms and run the exe files like that. However, when I go to change directories (cd d:-z: ), I get no cd-roms found. But they've boot been detected in bios, as the right Master and Slave combo, and they're on the right ribbons.
If I let it sit and go all the way to the harddrives, I get a message asking me to run windows in safe mode, with a network, last best configuration, and normal. I've tried running all of those, but after I select one, the screen goes black, and the machine restarts. I never see Windows XP load screen.
Therefore, I'm out of ideas.
Has anybody else had this problem, and if so, how did you deal with it? If anybody has installed a 939 setup before, I don't think this is abnormal. I've never done this configuration before, so all the tricks I knew don't seem to be working in this environment.
Please send help ASAP!
