what you dont use another model ?
for example:

MINI +1.66 CPU+ parallel+low price

Two reasons
1. I need an external device to get the frequency I require for my axis so I use the SmoothStepper.
2. see pic ;)

Hi Ger

I have looked through my bios but I do not seem to have the options your other thread talks about.

I have done a complete new install of XP carried out all the optimisations apart from standard PC as this will not allow the boot from my sata hard drive just about to install Mach and try again.

Will keep you all posted with my progress or not which ever the case maybe


Thanks

Andy

On my old Dell, Mach3 will NOT run smoothly unless set to Standard PC. That very well could be the problem.

Hi Gerry

Thanks for the help, do you know how to get a pc to run as a standard pc and boot from a sata hard drive?
