Intel P965 Problems


4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm having installation issues.

I get the boot screen with the Apple, and then I get a small circle with a slash through it.


I went to safe mode with verbose switch on, in x86PC mode, and it showed a kernel panic, and crashed. It was "waiting for root device" It gives a kernel panic in the listing. I can try an Nvidia 7600gs video card if that will help.


The machine is:


E6300 CPU


Intel DP965LT Motherboard (the original 965 chipset, 16x PCIexpress, no onboard video)

eVGA 7900GT 256mb Video Card.

Seagate 250gb SATAII hard drive.


the above was tried with the drive in native, legacy, and AHCI modes.




Is there a motherboard list that always works? It would be nice to have a current generation motherboard that supports the latest really fast intel processors.


I was looking at an Nvidia 780i but figured it was NOT supported.
