-> Update your bios and disable all unused ports. (Serial or Parallel, floppy -> etc...) Put PCI as initial display device or similar.
The BIOS is the latest version. I've disabled every onboard interface except for the USB ports and LAN, but still get the Code 10 and 12 errors when the PCI adaptor comes first (but no errors at all when it comes second).
-> Then see about getting latest chipset driver
from manufacturer's website.
There's nothing on the Asus web site for any OS after Windows XP. I got the LAN driver working first, using an old version of Catalyst. After that all of the rest of drivers
installed themselves from Windows Update and the the LAN driver updated itself, so they should all be as current as possible.
-> Then install latest ATI driver from website. If you can't do this part, let me know after you did the other stuff.
I did a complete driver uninstall, rebooted and then reinstalled the latest Catalyst Windows 7 32-bit drivers from ATI. The log is below.

The system is still behaving exactly as before - the HD2400 is driving the Windows display but shows up in Device Manager as a Standard VGA Graphics Adaptor with a Code 10 error.
