OK this is very simple. I have a M5E motherboard.
I want to install XP on the M5E motherboard. I can not get that to happen.
I keep getting this error.
I have tried with 15 different versions of XP, from 84MB in size and stripped so bare that if I move my mouse too quick the OS will fall over.
To a full retail version with SP3. Still get his error.
I have tried to install via DVD, CD and USB stick. Still nothing.
I can install any and all the different OS's on a M4E motherboard with no problems.
My BIOS version is 1309
SSD - will try a mechanical platter HDD.
My BIOS is set to defaults, and the only change is with the SATA controller in IDE mode. (Have also tried with AHCI and RAID mode)
