NT 4.0 on a AMD processor

By jjohnson ·
I'm trying to install NT 4.0 on a 500 MHZ Processor on a Epox psa-b motherboard.
Everytime I try to load Sp 6a, it gives me a "File corrupt" error when its extracting the Service pack. Some time when i reboot the server I'll receive a blue screen error. I need to load the service packs but it rejects all of them. (4,5,6,6A).
I need some input.

I will guest that you are having a problem loading Microsoft software on a AMD processor,and it is noted that problems will occur when the processor speed is over 300mhz,so look at AMD or Microsoft knowledgebase concerning this problem which you will find a fix.

Thank you for you help. I found that I had a bad dimm chip on the memory board.

Another stab would be to Flas the BIOS there might be a fix there too. Secondly I would update all drivers (video). Lastly if you have spare ram sticks laying around try swapping them out.....
Hope this helps!
