When trying a copy of windows xp I was able to get, it installs normally, but when it goes to load into windows I get a bsod saying 'Mismatched kernel and hal image' and tells me to restart.
At the post, it gives information on the CPU, (Core 2 Quad), then says that there's an unknown cpu detected, and I need to update BIOS to use it at it's best. So, I flashed the BIOS with an update, and it worked fine, but still says i need to update my bios.
xclio windtunnel case
bfg nvidia GeForce 9800 GT
asus p5k motherboard
80GB IDE HDD
IDE CD Drive
(The hard drive and cd drive operate off the same cable, set to cable select)
Installing windows in my other tower, however, works without a problem?
Any Idea what kinds of issues could give me these problems?
