Alright, so for the last few hours I've been working on getting Windows XP installed, and with the help of Manyak, I was able to get an old IDE cable to use with a newer 40GB Seagate out of my girlfriend's old PC, and a spare IDE DVD drive I had laying around. It currently has a Slot 1 Pentium III and a Pentium III on a Slocket (370-->Slot 1) adapter. It turns out, after doing some research, that the system won't utilize dual-CPUs unless they are slot 1 Pentium IIs or IIIs (no Slocket adapters, which I have one of which installed). It recognizes both CPUs but won't use both. Oh well - I hope one of you guys can help me out there!
Anyway, Windows XP is installed with the single 500MHz CPU. It's only using 256MB of RAM for some reason (I have 2x256MB DIMMs installed, and CPU says 512MB... still investigating this). Either way, the machine is breathing life .
EDIT: When the CPUs were switched, the RAM went up to 384MB... Odd.
For some reason, my BNIB FX 5200 wouldn't install , but a MX 440 I had laying around did install, so that's what it's currently using.
Here's a few screenshots.
This is with the Slocket CPU being used (the one with the 370 CPU on the Slot 1 adapter):
This is with the CPUs switched:
So we apparently have some funky stuff going on here! Let's figure it out
