Win XP and AMD 1.4

By XinMan ·
I'm having trouble when I try to install Win XP on my AMD 1.4 it starts the setup and then gets to the part where it says at the bottom of the blue screen 'Starting Windows XP' and freezes. I've tried this on two diffrent machines both running AMD1.4 with two diffrent mainboards. Any help?

Win XP and AMD 1.4

I installed Win XP Pro on an AMD 1.4 with no problem. You didn't give much information but here is some advice:

1. Check you Motherboard's or Computer manufacturer's website to see if they have any BIOS updates. Most motherboards released Win XP optimized drivers.
2. If you are doing an upgrade, try doing a clean install. It is best to use the Windows XP installation floppies. You can download the files to make the boot disks at the following links depending which XP you have.
You need 5 floppies!! But it speeds up the installation.

Windows XP Home Edition:

Windows XP Professional:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/release.asp?releaseid=33291

Final advice:
Check all hardware conflicts. Some of your hardware might not be compatible with XP. Go to the Hardware Compatability List Website to check:
