I bought all new parts from newegg and built a computer from scratch. Put everything together and started it right up and it was perfect.. it detected the sata drive, cd rom, etc all of that. So I boot from cd rom to install windows next. I format the new drive, then continue .. it copies some sytem files shortly, then says its restarting... it restarts . shows motherboard info, and runs its checks, then when it should go back into the install, it restarts and goes to motherboard info again. and does that in a a loop
so i tried to run recovery console (cuz i can stil choose to boot from cd) but then i would just be installing again up only until it restarts...
i ran chkdsk /r and its doing that now... the initial quick check said everything is fine...
any suggestions? thanks in advance.. oh here are the specs
AMD 2.8 dual core am2 socket
2 gigs of corsair ram
LG cd rom
Roswill 500 watt power supply
Western Digital s-ata 400 gb drive
and thats all that is there.. no other things are plugged.. well just mouse and keyboad obvisouly and montior... but no pci slots, or that mumbo jumbo
