Received the 9400 today and need to install XP Pro SP 1. I boot the CD and before any input is expected from the character part of installation phase (About 1 minute after booting) I receive a BSOD.
I am having the same issue, I looked through the Intel site and can't find anything to do about it.
The bloated default load is horrid on the 9400 and even after uninstalling it all it still is filled with leftovers. Also the OS install directory is on the disk with some other stuff i dare not delete. I just received the 9400 and would like a clean install, I have installed XP Pro about 100 times (this to my dismay is not an exaggeration) and had this happen only 1 other time, and I fixed it with a bios update. I was thinking about building my 8600 with a fresh XP install upgrading to service pack 2 then ghosting that and just restoring it the 9400, I am using a corporate version of XP so it won't notice the hardware swap (urr I don't think) then I could go through and install the drivers... any thoughts on if this would work in the meantime of waiting for a dell solution? It's 111:45pm I have many hours to morning I may just try it and see how bad I can make situations ;) I will ghost current build on 9400 to make sure I am not left with a 3,000 hunk of gorgeous junk.. I'll report back and tell you how big a mistake this is in the morning ;)
I am now encountering this same problem...has anybody figured out a way to get around it yet? I can't seem to figure out what driver I need to get or where to get it from. A link to where to get the right driver, and how to slipstream it into the installer would be VERY helpful. Thanks very much.
