    Hi,

    My desktop PC preloaded with WinXP (SP2).

    Booting 7-Max configuration will cause an I/O error or LSASS error, fail to read/write registry and then reboot.

    Anyone have the same experience?

    Thanks.

    Rgds,
    Johnson Lam.

      try such item in boot.ini
      /3GB /NOPAE /fastdetect
      If it doesn't work, it means that there is bug in drivers/XP.

      Hi,

      Seems 7-Max is not YET ready for me, I've tested it on 3rd PC but got the same problem.

      WinXP seems not working with /3GB /NOPAE, any other way to work around?
