Hi Gang,

I have a dual boot desktop. win7 on C and Wnxpsp3 on D

I have an AMD 2600 XP+ and I upgraded to an AMD 3000 XP+. The only way I could get the extra speed out of the 3000 was to increase the multiplier. The only way I could do this was to increase the mhz from 133 to 165mhz in the bios. Otherwise I get a reading that says the cpu is only 1.75 ghz.

The problem is when I do this I can't boot into Windows 7, It just says "starting windows 7" and it just stalls. When I try to boot into the XP drive I get an error message like its trying to boot into the wrong disk.

How can I fix this?

See if there is a bios update for the motherboard that supports that processor.

Is the setting overclocked?

I think so, although I've never overclocked before so I'm not sure.

I know that if I set the speed t 166 it doesn't start. As a matter of fact if I set for anything for155mhz it won't start. If I set it for 154mhz it will start and remain in windows, for like 8 minutes, and then it reboots itself.

Probably not a windows or software problem,but a hardware one.
Restore the BIOS to their orig ones.
