Have new MLB, Power supply, memory and AMD 64 bit processor. All hardware is compatable. The MLB is a MSI K8 Socket 939. The only thing on the system that isn't onboard the MLB is the wireless net interface card (which is also new).
When installing XP (no other pre-exsisting OS) I have partitioned the HD (which is new) and started installation the system will hang. It has hung up at different stages of installing or rebooting. I have finally got XP on the system and started to reboot after the install. It hangs at the splash screen for Windows XP (where the bottom bar moves then just freezes). The system simply stops. I have re-installed along with re-partitioning and formatting several times. The hardware is seen in BIOS. I can't seem to get any further. Microsoft's support has not been able to resolve the problem they just say, "Thats strange".
Does anyone have any suggestions?
