Hello, I have a unique problem. I have an ECS 865G-M8 Motherboard with a Phoenix Technologies Bios Version 6.00PG. I would like to know if there is an update for this BIOS. The reason I am searching for it is because every time I try to install XP PRO on the machine it reboots randomly during the install and restarts the setup. I tried using a new version of XP (2010) and the same problem arises. After searching through vast amounts of garbage I have come to the conclusion that the BIOS may need updating for this install to work. Here are the specs of the current BIOS:
