I think it's something about the BIOS, or the cache memory. It's such an old computer and some parts were missing or loose. I'll have to fix that first. Sad

What kind of Deskpro is it?
I know that some Compaq computers didn't have a normal BIOS (they used a seperate partion on the HD). In the computerstore which I've been working a while a go, a colleague delete that partition... After that the computer was unusable... Tongue Lucky for him there was another compaq and it could be restored with 'ghost'.

That 'service' partition is usually not needed .... the basic autodetection should work even without the partition .... Compaq computers have BIOSes without integrated setup ... they have just a very basic stuff to be able to boot ... could you make a photo of opened case (=motherboard) and post it here?
