I run a media production course in the UK for 16-19 yr old studnets. We have just bought a toaster bundle (ver 2) latest build. We have installed this in a HP xw8000 workstation.

Its a E7505 chipset and we are running a dual Xeon processor. Sound good, it just blue screens every time we try and load the toaster driver.

Amazingly it does work in a bog standard 1.6Mhz Evo compac!

However this is not our machine and we desparatley need it to work in the workstataion we bought!

Anyone knows whats going on? We've tried it on win2000 service pack 3 and XP service pack 1.

Please help!

Look for the rear fan in the Power supply, ( mine uses to stop and fry the power supply. )also is very good idea to use the front extra fan to stay in the cool side.

Hi Vini,

The fan is fine, have you actually got yours working with this machine?

If so whats your configuration. Were now suspecting the onboard scsi card.

If you could post back your configuration I'd be most grateful.
