    Hi , I am a beginner Computer Builder . And I have done quite a bit of basic repair and builds . But I ran into a problem and don't have any clue what why its happening . I am building a generic PC with a 450 Pentium 8 gig hd , 128 mg of ram . My problem is this , on loading up XP I get the normal hit any key to boot from CD . But just before that I get a message " No Emulation System Type-(00) " Now it seems to load fine but EVERY time I get to 34% of the Windows setup it freezes . I thought it might be a bad copy of XP So I tryed another , I get the same . Could someone give me some info on this message and maybe what I can do . Thanks :confused:

    check and see what Bios you have if its El Torito BIOS, your going to need to update it, when you get the system type (00) means its not bootable. I hope thats what it was and that your able to fix it. please keep us updated :)

    - No emulation just means ur system can natively access the CDdrive
    - Assuming the CD is ok, check your memory :)

    Thank you for the help

    Hey thanks NomaV6 for the info . Well I checked the Bios its ASUS P2B-F .Now I just wish I knew if I have to update or not . Any ideas how to find out ? And could it be a Bios setting doimng it ? :confused:

    And Praetor thank you also . I am pretty sure the disc's are good I have used them on other setups and like I said I tried two different ones. And the memory is 128 mb it does read it well in start up . But I changed the port it was in and I even added another 128 . And it still does it . Any other ideas . Cause this is really driving me nuts . :(
