Hi, I recently purchased a new motherboard, power supply, and case 5 days ago. I had put together the parts and the whole computer was running smoothly, until I attempted to install my Windows XP Home Edition. I recieved this error : Error Loading Operating System. My computer specs are:
EPoX EP-8KRAIPRO Socket A (Socket 462) VIA KT880 ATX AMD Motherboard
AeroCool Silver Line AEROPOWER SL450 ATX 450W Power Supply
ATI Radeon X850 XTPE Video Card AGP 8X
AMD Athlon 2800+

Step by Step explanation:
1) I insterted the Windows XP disc, using boot from disc and formated the C: partition.
2) After the installation was finished, I reset the computer and recieved the error:Error Loading Operating System.

I tried deleting the partition, then creating a new one then reformating it on that. As well as trying to reformat again w/out deleting the partition.

Can I get some help to as what I can do to fix my problem? I think it has something to do with the motherboard, but I don't know myself.

Thanks in advance,
-John.

As i see it you have these options (I may be wrong)

Boot up using a Win 98 start up disk (or get one from Bootdisk.com) and run Fix /mbr


Look at this link on MBR

Or reinstall XP using a low level format ...FAT 32
