it'll post, but reboots when i try to install an OS


Recommended Posts

It also reboots as soon as Memtest starts too. The thing is, it ran fine before I installed some new processors.


Here are some relevant system specs- let me know if there are any other specs you'd like.


MSI K8T Master2 motherboard

2 Opteron 248 processors

Corsair XMS 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) ECC Registered Dual Channel TWINX1024RE-3200LLPT



Previously, I had a single Opteron 242 processor, and I had no problems with anything.


It doesn't reboot if I turn ECC off in the BIOS, but memtest does fail fairly quickly (and I know that ECC really does need to be on for this RAM/board). CAS is set to 2.0 (nothing fancy), I've tried setting voltage to both "auto" and 2.65V, but with no effect.


BIOS was originally at v1.1, but after having this problem, I flashed it with v1.35, no difference. Please, if you have any other ideas, please let me know.
