Hello!

Need some troubleshooting help.

Im setting up my XP-32 AGP capture system:

Intel D875PBX MB
Pentium 4 3.2 - SL6WG
Gskill DDR400 & Dell DDR400 - 2 - 1gb sticks (Installed A1 & B1 slot)
Ati Rage pro 128 AGP 4x (Not for capture... Just for Setup)
Keyboard - PS/2 to USB installed in Purple PS/2 port
SSD - MX500 formatted on Win 7 Pro (Proper Alignment for XP-32bit install)

Issues:

NO VIDEO... Using a known working card from Mac G4 (ATI Rage 128 pro AGP 4x). No beeps or any other error codes heard. I dont want to plug the AGP capture card until I can visually POST. Keyboard lit on NUMLOCK is seen. CTRL-ALT-DLT works (I think... NUMLOCK goes out then comes back on).

Do I need to get a PCI video card? Any other suggestions?

Thanks.

The Macintosh version of the card won't work. It has the wrong ROM on it to work in PCs.

Sergei316 11-15-2018 08:11 AM

I forgot all about the ROM. Thanks for your help.

What will be the eventual capture card?

Sergei316 11-17-2018 11:46 PM

AIW 9700 Pro. I also have a AIW 600 pro PCIe for Win 7 pro setup. Hopefully this goes a little smoother. I had to get a VGA card to test everything before final installation.

I have a full install cd of XP Home SP2. Should I pick a Pro version or would XP Home be OK?

Correction: This is going to be another XP SP2 system with PCIe AIW capture card.

The Win 7 Pro setup is for my firewire capture system. I tested this the other night on about 6 hours of video and had zero dropped frames with WinDV. I wanted to test my Sony TRV-320 camcorder because I was having issues with the PLAY / FF / REW / STOP buttons on the top panel not responding correctly after several hours of use. It seemed ok for about 3 hours than started to act up again. However, if I use the remote I had no issues.

VGA card installed. BIOS updated.

Installed XP Home SP2 on SSD.

Now I am getting an error "ERROR LOADING OPERATING SYSTEM".

Any ideas?

What graphics card are you using now?

Bad OS installer disc? I've seen that before. Is it original, or did you slipstream it? Easy to do bad slipstream.

Sergei316 11-18-2018 12:26 AM

Just a VGA card for breadboarding. i dont want to install the AIW until I have XP operational.

It is an original XP SP2 Home edition CD.

I have another disc. Maybe a new install.

Should I reformat in Win 7? Or from the XP disc?

UPDATE 0400:
Tried several HD's, both IDE and SSD, and was still receiving errors.

The problem was the AHCI drivers not loading. I could have slipstreamed them in but decided against it.

Used IDE Seagate 80gb HD and IDE DVD player. XP loaded and running.
