Win server 2003 setup hang

By fongch ·
Hi, i am using a AMD athlon 500Mhz, with 512MB Ram and a FIC SD11 Mobo on my pc. When i try to install Win 2003 server, after it copies files to my hd and when it shows "Starting windows", it will hang. I have tried coping the i386 to my hd and run winnt.exe but the problem still exist. Could it be due to my hardware that is not supported? Thax u in advance.

Hi there,

Most probably it is your hardware. I had a lot of problems installing 2003 on various hardware platforms, which also hanged my setup in different stages. Up to know it was either a firmware/BIOS upgrade I had to perform or just get the latest drivers and load them in setup or before setup, e.g RAID controllers etc.
By the way AMD Athlon 500 MHZ might be not enough to run 2003 probably.
