I recently posted on here relating to problems building my computer as the fans wouldn't turn over. I have since found out that the Motherboard was incorrectly listed as being compatible with the processor (AMD Phenon II x6 - check power on the Mobo)

Having purchased a new Mobo and put the computer together it all starts fine until it tries to load windows. I then have a flash of the blue screen of death before it restarts.

When I try the safe mode start it always gets as far as the crcsys.dsk input and then stalls, before flashing me the BSOD again and restarting.

If I take out the sata hard drive it works better, but obviously this is because it isn't interested in trying windows.

Any ideas?

Anyone???!!

Whenever I try it tries to make me create a boot disk on a 3.5" disk. Which is strange as it doesn't come with a dive connector. I am then forced into freedos and I can't get any further.

I would pull the motherboard and make sure you have no extra standoffs under it. Remove all but one stick of RAM and all extra USB devices, then all drives. It should boot past POST and halt when trying to find a boot drive.
