: Update on the problem, now that Microsoft has changed its install procedures, I can't even start the installation due to a "Blocking Error"

: Look at this:

: Setup found some blocking issues. You must address these issues
: before you can continue upgrading your computer.

: Blocking Issues
: Helpful Information

: ===============
: Setup found some issues that will prevent you from upgrading your
: Windows installation. You must fix all of these issues before you can
: upgrade to Windows XP.

: Unsupported Hardware Configuration
: ----------------------------------
: Your computer has hardware devices that prohibit you from upgrading
: to Windows XP.

: Highpoint HPT366 Ultra DMA Controller

: Anyway, that's absolutely awful.

: Thanx

: : Hello all,

: : Well, the ABIT BE6 problems continue.

: : Well, surprise the ABIT doesn't have any XP drivers.
: : Surprise once again, the highpoint site doesn't have any XP drivers either.

: : I tried using NT4 and Win2K drivers, but to no avail.
: : If I don't use the F6 option, I get an error saying
: : I don't have a hard disk. If I do use the F6 option,
: : the installation freezes.

: : Any advice at all would be very appreciated.
: : Please email me your response (

: : Thanx

I've got the same problem. Messed with the storage controllers and now Win98 won't even boot. Thank you Abit for creating such useless products.
