Thanks for the advice everyone...the secret is to tell the BIOS to bbot to SCSI before IDE and then install Win2K, providing the special IDE drivers at the appropriate time.

I can testify that the P5AB REV 1.05 wil not work, I didn't know that there was such a thing as REV 1.06 of the AB although there is one of the P5A(whish will also not work with + series chips).

Hummmm..this may be an ACPI thing...

503+, NTFS and large hard drive troubles....

I've been going through hell trying to get win2k installed on a 503+ with a 40GB western digital hard drive. The win2K installer seems unable to write a partition and even when using the WD drive copy and partition utility on a different mother board once I transplant the new hd to the 503+ I get ei...

Might want to ...
