Shuts down when installing... BIOS?

Postby leif7506 » Mon Oct 12, 2009 12:34 am

Hey there!

I want to install another version of Win XP. Used the cd and suddenly everything went wrong.
I´ve came so far that it says starting windows...and then it shuts down. I´ve yet to format disk or install anything. After searching the web I´ve found this http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q310760.

So now I try to upgrade my BIOS but I can´t do it through windows.
Created a bootcd...with this file: BIOS Windows Flash (EXE) - AMILO M1405 / M7405

I have this file in the boot cd:
FTS_BIOSWindowsFlashEXEAMILOM1405M7405_103C_1002270.EXE

But when a try to start by writing its name it says: "The program cannot run in dos mode"

Now I need you experts!

What have I done wrong and what can I do to fix this? Does it seems like its a BIOS-problem?

Help!

Did you try the original Windows CD provided with the laptop?
In every case: you can try the hardware reset as described in the FAQ (only loading the BIOS defaults may already help).
