I downloaded the XP Advisor from the Microsoft Web Site to test my system in advance of installing XP.

I get an error message: ERROR 3E6h - Contact Microsoft Technical Support. The advisor quits and there is no entry to the XP LOG. From what I understand if I attempt to install XP, the installation will quit with the same error message.

Well, tech support from Microsoft puts you on hold for an hour and generally, when you might get to talk to someone, if you haven't yet purchased XP, the representative doesn't really want to talk to you - and they just hang up on you. Very nice.

On the other hand, my system includes: A maxtor PCI Controller Card (which looks like a SCSI to the BIOS); another SCSI PCI card, a radeon video card, and some other typical stuff. I'm running a PIII 550 mhz with 256K memory. I'm running WINDOWS ME currently.

Any thoughts on what may be behind this problem.
