I have a 120 GB sata hard drive
I have a Terebyte sata hard drive that I will use for just storage
I have a DVD Light scribe Sata
I have a blu-ray rom Sata
I have gb of DDR400 ram
Pentuim 4 3.0 ghz
I have built many computers and this one has stumped me. I have windows XP Professional I am trying to load. I can see all of the drives and the hard drive shows up and the memory counts correctly. I boot from the CD and it loads the files and then right before it should go to the format screen it reboots. If I don't boot from the cd it takes me to the Safe Mode , safe mode with networking or start windows normally. When I do that it just shuts down and reboots.
I really need some guidance. I even took the hard drive and put it in one of my other computers and installed windows xp on it and it still won't get past that start windows normally reboot problem. I even tried to install it on the terabyte and it did the same thing. Loading the drivers at the bottom and then gets to the fat NTFS File and reboots. If I try to start in safe mode it shows about 17 or so lines of commands like if you were to do it safe mode with networking and then it shuts down and reboots. Help if you can. I am about done
