My Life Story

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok, i have bought a AMD K8 Trition GIGA-BYTE Motherboard and also a AMD Athlon 3000+ cpu, ok here's my problem i have installed evrything correctly and everything turns on, then on the screen it says Start Windows Normally but once i click that it restarts, so i put in the motherboard cd and when i boot form it, it gives me 5 options,

1: Execute Backup Utility
2: Execute Restore Utility
3: Remove backup image
4: set password
5: Exit and restart

so i pick number 1 and with 42 minutes passed its only at 20% can someone tell me what this is doing? is it copying all my stuff from my harddrive then is going to install my motherboard so i dont have to re-install windows?

Hrm, I was expecting some really deep story about your life. Guess not...

So Windows will not work correctly after a basic install? e.g.: Install windows correctly and flawlessly, and it won't boot ever.

Don't know what to tell you about that. If Gigabyte has tech support (forums are good), check there. So does the thing ever work? I guess leave it on overnight? Hrm. Need more details/info.

And as a last reminder, most things ship with this incredible piece of (often redundant to those who know all...) paperware people like to call a "Manual". You might want to check that out...just a suggestion. Not saying you would ever need it, no no...

Darn I was really hoping this was one of those "post your" fill in the blank type threads... man I have all 3000 pages down in print--so, oh well...sorry about your inexplicable problem....
