This is the " problematic " system that i have:

Soyo SY-K7V DRAGON PLUS! MB
256 MB DDR 233
40 Gb WD HDD
G3 TI500
Floppy
300 W PS
Sony CD-RW


The Problem:

Most times on Win XP installations ( Pro/Home/Sp1/Sp2 ) there are various errors that come up:

> The most popular one is " The ACPI BIOS in this system is not fully compliant with the ACPI specification. I try the install with F7 to diable it (ACPI) but same things happens.
> The latest one is " The file ntfs.sys is corrupted. "
* All the above happen b4 i get to choose a parition.
> Sometimes the install just dies @ the installation of the PCI Bus.
> On two ocasions I manged to get to pick the partition and file sys. type, only to ge a fat32.sys and ntfs.sys corrputed files error.

The motherboard is set up properly, or @ least as fas as I can tell
The bios is updated to date and everything looks fine in there too.

I'm sure I'm missing something but I just can't figure out what, been @ it for some long 2 weeks lol.

If you read this all, I thank you for your time.

Think it's time to hang meself from the MS building.

Windows 98 just dies after the HDD scan and linux also rejects the idea of installation.

Quite frankly, I suspect you have a hardware issue with the MB. I'd start by resetting the BIOS to factory defaults, then downloading MemTest86 and running a comprehensive test overnight on the system. Remove ALL the expansion boards not needed for a basic install, you should just need the video board, and then try to do the install. This might be a bus conflict...
