I am attempting a 5.1 installation.

I have two clones with Award bios. One is a P2, the other is a P3. The
P3 has SIS hardware.

The bios do not have a PNP OS option (PNP peripherals, yes.)

On the P2 I have started running the installation successfully many
times now, but it always crashes copying/extracting the files from the

The P3 doesn't get through probing devices before it crashes.

Any help would be welcome.
