Bios Upgrade for Windows 2000

  Farleyjim 14:25 17 Aug 04

I've just tried to load windows 2000 on a newly formatted hard disk and been told that the ACPI Bios is not fully compliant with ACPI spec. From that I assume the motherboard is too old (bios date 2/8/99). My intention is to download a bios upgrade. Are there any other issues I should consider e.g. board is too old to bother with? Any views would be welcome, thanks.

Its likely a BIOS update might help,but what are the mobo specs actually,eg,what CPU will it take/type of RAM(SD-RAM,DDR),PCI port number,2 or 4 or 6/does it have USB,etc.Then we can offer advice on your best course of action.

Given all the potential hassle, I bit the bullet and drove over to Novatech and bought one of their motherboard bundles for £104. It fitted a treat and I have now loaded Windows 2000 and am now well on my way. Many thanks to all.
