Well I had this problem for a long time now. I at first thought it was the ram. I have bought new ram but it still doesn’t install windows XP or any other os for that matter. I am going crazy! I think it is the bios.
Bios Version V00.01.28
Main Processor AMD-K6 - 2/300
Cache Ram 512kb
Total Memory 256Mb
Dram Bank 0 SDRAM
DRAM Bank 1 None
More in detail the windows setup starts but half way in the setup winXp gives me this error saying: Windows setup has been canceled to prevent damage to your comp.............. disable bios memory options such as caching or shadowing.
win 2000 about the same thing i just cant remember
win 95 divided by zero error etc.
Oh and yes It does boot from cd.
