I think my hardware is inadequate to the task. "Windows Setup" - "This platform is not supported." seems to be all I can get from Microsoft. Probably the limitation is my AMD Sempron 3000+ CPU and not the motherboard (Asus M2A-VM) or the RAM (4GB). Where can I learn which Socket AM2 CPUs will work? Is there a truly definitive source? Thanks in advance for all your help (and comments and cute shots about shoddy old equipment).
