I have bought a whole new system and i have done all the settings in BIOS and made a floppy with SATA drive.

And then when i try to install XP pro SP1 and press F6 to load the drivers the install simply freezes sometime after that.

I've read some topics before and saw that SATA disks can have power supply problems.

Is 380W not enough for my rig?
