Using Tyan K8W Thunder s2885 in rack mount case. The board is over 10 years old. Dual AMD Opteron 250 processors, 64 bit. RAM 8 Gb. ATI Radion HD 3650, AGP. There is only the video card, driving a single LCD monitor, PSP mouse & USB keyboard, and the HDD attached to the board, no peripherals.
I am installing Win 7 home Premium 64 bit. I have had Windows 7 running on this board for over a year, from an IDE 80 gig drive.
I installed a new SATA 500 gb and have only that drive in the case. I have to manually load 114R5_x64_15150_logo drivers for Sil Image SATA controller, from a USB drive. I have just spent a day learning about and using DISKPART to finally be able to start the install. The install starts OK, expands and loads files. About 2 minutes into 'expanding files' I get BSOD, STOP: 0x00000124,(0xFFFFFA800643F038,0X00000000B604A001,0X000000000000813)
I have repeated the steps and reproduced the problem at about the same time into the install. I have no idea if there is a way to read/post a log. Since windows is not installed, there is not the usual dump available.
I appreciate and value all helpful suggestions, except those that tell me to buy a new board. I can't do that right now, it is what it is.
