Am I wasting my time trying to install Win XP O/S
on a system (now Win 98) with a 500Mhx chip K6.

The MS Online Support drew a blank but I may have been lost in too many knowledge pages.

Maybe MS favours Intel and not AMD or is the MBoard too old (circa 3 or 4 yrs)

My mate runs it on a 500Mhz PIII system with a 192MB or RAM with all his parts coming from the same era and XP is entirly happy on it.

Thanks "The Sack" but a PIII is INTEL if it means a Pentium 3

It was not an AMD v Intel problem after all. I was doing a self build and getting a Windows protection error on bootup which closed down the PC. The problem was an ATI graphics card and a dodgy driver. Changed cards - end of problem.
