I finished building a new system, everythings installed, it works great, except after POST I get a blinking cursor for 30 seconds then Xp loads.

Haven't found any errors or driver issues.
Any suggestions?

Very likely you have it set to not display something during the post period. I have an HP which goes through about 4 phases during boot up, 3 different graphics and the blank screen you describe, and it's "normal".
