Windows 2000 Installation problems
We've had a big problem with installing Windows 2000 on one of our computers. It has the FIC VA-503+ motherboard with 64MB of RAM. During the "Registers Components" phase of the Final Tasks portion, we would receive Blue Screens of death and other errors as shown below. Note: FIC in early 2004 has introduced a BIOS upgrade, JE439, that resolves this problem.
"A driver has corrupted the memory management system PTEs"
"IRQ_not_less_or _equal_to" KB article Q165863
The computer was completely stripped of all components except for the hard drive, CD-ROM drive, and video card.
This just gave different errors but the installation still hung up at the "Registers Components" section. Also tried using a different hard drive, and a different video card. Same problem.
Finally, after 13 attempts, we went to the BIOS and enabled the USB support and changed the "PNP OS Installed' setting to "No". This fixed the problem and allowed windows 2000 to finish the installation.
