Overclock only works in Vista. NO XP

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Well to start this is my first processor overclock and i am pretty satisfied with the results. Except i cant boot into xp. it posts just fine and vista and kubuntu boot too and both show the overclocked result. I ran orthos for about 20min in vista without a problem but i stopped it because the main problem is i cant boot xp when overclocked at all. I even tried raising from 1.8 to 1.9 to boot xp and its still a no go.
any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Specs go.

e4300 at 3.02ghz 1.3v
GeIL 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel at 2.0v
ECS NF650iSLIT-A

At first i thought my oc was too high to boot windows so i kept lowering it until i was back at 1.8 then i tried for the heck of it raising it to 3.02 and booting kubuntu since it kept posting fine and kubuntu worked then tried vista and that worked so i was baffled at why xp would not.

Additional Comment:

I just used ntune to try overclocking in xp and it was able to get a measly to a 1.9ghz. Why cant xp boot while vista and kubuntu work fine. this is driving me insane. lol

Ahaha, VISTA FTW!!! Vista>XP
Same here, XP was very sensitive for any OC and it would freeze all the time, never happened in Vista!

lol ya xp doesnt even start to boot at the slightest overclock. the best i could do was with ntune and i would rather use the bios for more control. but you were able to get an overclock thru the bios to boot in xp? thats better than me.

PS you guys are fast on these forums. i posted on another forum and have had 1 reply in 3 days.

Dont know if this will help but i unplugged the vista/kubuntu hard drive so only the hd with XP was left and ocd the processor but it still didnt boot.
Thanks for the help so far.

I am going to reinstall xp and see if that works but i may just use vista because im sure the performance gained by the oc will outweigh whats lost by using vista. I hope lol.

I'm going to guess that perhaps some driver was causing XP to be more sensitive? With XP, did you install any additional drivers for SATA or anything else?

If you reinstalled, and everything was fine, assuming the exact same version of XP, the only explanation I can think of would be some driver. This kind of surprises me since one would think that drivers for XP would be more refined than those for Vista.
