I have installed a Xeon e5440 into my lga775 Gigabyte GA-G41MT-S2P Micro Atx motherboard with the latest bios version (1.3) and have completely reset the BIOS (very unusual layout). Everything worked perfectly until i moved from my Windows 7 to Windows 10 which had previously worked on my older E5700 processor. when I tried to launch Windows 10 10074 preview, It would say on the blue logo for about half a second, then give me an error message:
Your PC needs to restart.
Please hold down the power button.
Error Code: 0x0000005D
When using the Install disk for preview 10074 It will just show the Windows 10 logo for about 90 seconds, without the spinning dots, then just restart.
I am completely stumped, as the E5440 has the special XD bit, and conforms to all the over necessary parameters of Windows 10, so i am beginning to wonder if my bios settings are incorrect.
if anyone has any help (for example, what my bios settings should look like or what the problem might also be) please dont be afraid to contribute
