Hello EY,

You have your answer in the error message:

Desktop Boards do not support Windows Server 2003

So choose anothe Operating system or buy hardware for servers.

Best regards

Re: Blue Screen during Windows 2003 server installation ,PLS HELP!!

I beg to differ. I have a number of installs of server W2K3 on desktop
boards, and they work fine (but I wouldn't want to use them for production)

Does the EM indicate where it is failing (eg a driver file) or a bit more of
an error message. Have you run any associated EMs into MS KB? Have you
ensured all of the hardware is installed securely?

Regards,

Richard H. Rowson

c:\windows\minidump

Post those files somewhere

alternatively

c:\windows\memory.dmp

^^ with those files in hand, it's quite easy to say which driver is the root
cause of the problem.

Andrew

Meinolf,

"Not supported" doesn't mean "won't work".

It's intel's way of saying `well we don't want to mess with kids that decide
to install win2k3 on the home PCs`. The architecture of win2k3 and winxp is
extremely similar, it's even more similar between winvista and win2k8 :)

So....differences of the motherboard won't be causing a crash...and yes you
CAN install winxp drivers to win2k3 and vice versa. Even more - most 2k
drivers (pro/server) will work fine, and even vista and 2k8 are in the same
bunch.

The problem is: the more weird setup of drivers/hardware you have, the more
chance that you'll run into weird problems, hence they say `it's not
supported`.

Regards,

Andrew

Re: Blue Screen during Windows 2003 server installation ,PLS HELP!!

Another point to be made...Are you doing an upgrade or a fresh install?
Looking at the M/board specs, there is nothing out of the ordinary to
suggest driver issues. If you are doing an upgrade, try a fresh build as
these tend to be more reliable

Regards,

Richard
