i have a lite-on 812S. couple of days ago i upgraded the firmware to US0Q match more media (not a hacked, this was one of the patches from liteon website. i didn’t use any patching utility because it was just an .exe file). the patch appeared to go fine, it completed and asked to reboot…since then, my computer reboots continuously - i.e. just when windows finishes loading it loops back to bios. ack!
i searched through these forums first and read through this and this thread but haven’t been able to fix the problem. i tried killaspi, i tried using safe mode and unistalling/reinstalling the hardware and the IDE channel drivers, still reboots…
windows starts fine when the 812S is unplugged from the system, so i was able to get into the control panel uncheck the automatic reset thing which win2k does. then i was able to see this error message before having to hard-reboot again
i searched on the msdn for the error code but just found stupid useless answers like
Check the Microsoft Hardware Compatibility List to verify that the hardware and its drivers are compatible with Windows 2000. For information about the hardware, contact the supplier. If you are installing Windows 2000 for the first time, check the Windows 2000 system requirements, including the amount of RAM and disk space required to load the operating system. Also, check the Hardware Compatibility List to verify that the system can run Windows 2000. (what!)
does anybody have some ideas i could try (short of reinstalling windows)?
