    I have an Asus K8N-E Deluxe Motherboard, with an Athlon 64 3400 running XP
    x64 and x86 dual boot.

    I was checking my Event Log and I see this...

    \??\D:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\AMDPCI.sys has been blocked from
    loading due to incompatibility with this system. Please contact your
    software vendor for a compatible version of the driver

    Where did you get the AMDPCI.sys from?

    Why is it on your system?

    The file is originally from AMD and the purpose was to fix a flaw that
    only affected Windows 2000.

    So how did you get it on your system?

    It won't load because it is a 32-bit driver and Win x64 cannot load
    32-bit driver, only 64-bit.

    I just did a search...and the file is NOT on my system???

    Does anyone have any idea what might be calling for that file to load?

    Make sure you include hidden and system files in the search.

  7. I was just about to say that, John.
    My system (based on NForce4 chipset) has AMDK8.sys
    (\windows\system32\drivers) and AMDACPI.sys (same folder), but no AMDPCI.sys.
    Did a search also on an ASUS K8N mobo and couldtn't find AMDPCI.sys.
    Google searches find references to that file but in very outdated forums.

    Guess I just browsed by sooner than you or Andre. Andre seems to be
    spending less time here this week. Maybe he is tied up playing with the new
    Vista release.

  9. It's tying me up just getting a good install on my x64 box. First time
    success on an x86 box, but not the x64. It's been grim for me.

    Hope you can get your 64-bit box straightened out soon. I imagine that when
    the Vista beta versions get the public testers you will be spending most of
    your time in that site. At this point this system doesn't seem to be
    drawing too many new users. It was certainly more active during beta and
    early adopters.

  11. Yes, its a problem for me right now, I am trying to get some things to work,
    it can't stop BSODing on me. But I really want to use it since its been so
    long since we got a new build (5231).
