It stops booting after the SDD loads. I do a CTL-ALT-DEL and it shows a trap message. The first line of it shows that there is a problem in the UART. Should I be using the AGP video card instead of the onboard video? (I will give it a try).

Hi BWG,

do you know the exact VGA chipset that is built onto the mainboard? If so, try to check with Scitechs list of supported chipsets: http://www.scitechsoft.com/chiplist/snap_os2_chiplist.html

Unless I know that a certain VGA chipset works with Snap or SDD, I usually go for selecting "standard VGA" for setup, then I do the rest of the setup and once teh system reboots stable, I go for installing the snap/sdd drivers. I must admit that I have the "real" Snap registered instead of the /SE version that comes along with eCS.
I always prefer to have AGP cards plugged into the slot than an onboard VGA chip, because nowadays they don't have dedicated memory but steal away 32 meg or less/more form the computers RAM. I don't like that.

Greetings
Thomas

I installed a more powerful power supply. It still froze when it came to the audio startup sound. I took out the Crystal chipset PCI audio card. It boots okay (mostly - it still does not load the web cam driver). I enabled the onboard sound. It works with the UniAud driver. It does not freeze up. I am happy.
