MVP3G2 problem
ronbruce Jun-21-00 06:33 AM
I have just put together a box with a K6 2 500
on a MVP3G2, with Matrox G400, 20 gb IBM, 2 gb Quantum,Promise Ultra 66 card with CD RW and
CD plugged into each Ide slot. The Idea being that
every Ide gadget runs from its own slot.
I got thru the Fdisk and partitioning of the 20 gb
drive succesfully, loaded CD drivers of a floppy
( with a fair bit of trouble) then installed Win95
When I rebooted I received the message
"While initializing Device IOS windows Protection error"
I am a bit stuck for what to do, I've read where
I have to upgrade the BIOS, install Via 4 in 1,
Latest G400 drivers, Promise Ultra drivers,
However I do not know which order to do this?

The Promise and G400 drivers need Win95 to be
successfully running to install them, but what of the others. I have all the relevant drivers either
on floppy or CD.

As the Promise card was not yet working I ran the CD out of the second IDE cable outlet on my 2gb
Quantum drive,

The current BIOS is dated 3/3/00

I want to install a MIRO DC30 card when all is well, it needs to use IRQ 9, 10 or 11

I hope you can offer some help at this stage

Thanks for the prompt reply.
I already had AMDK62UPD.exe on a floppy, however
I cannot start windows as I get the "message"
and when I tried to install from DOS, I get the
message "this program cannot be run in DOS mode"
SO, how do I load this program????????

I even reloaded WIN 95 hoping I would be able to
run it somehow, but on rebooting I get the old

Thanks ronbruce.
