So a friend was looking to upgrade, ordered a Gigabyte G41 Combo to replace an old Foxconn board he had in a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo system. And I give my old 8600GT to use. We set it up, using the on board graphics. At first we used a WD 500GB HDD pulled straight out from his system with vista 64 bit installed. Upon first startup we got the recovery message and started windows normally, upon doing this when attempting to load windows it restarted, we repeated this several times to the same outcome. I took the HDD and installed XP. After installing XP when we attempt to startup, on the POST screen we get some strange coloured squares and it will not go any further, nor will it boot from other devices such as CD. And now the PCI-e graphics do not work. Thanks.
