I then proceed to do the repair through repair console on the win xp cd, but I couldn't do it, it would freeze up...so then I proceed to reformat the hard drive again, I went through the process of installing win xp, I pressed F6 to load the raid driver, and it continued setting up win xp, after that the agreement to terms page come up and I press F8 to go to the next step and it freezes looking for a file called "setupp.ini" I belive. Sometimes if I do the process faster I can go a little bit further into the setup where it asks if I want to keep current FAT 32 or go to NTFS, but in the end, it ends up freezing again, and the cd-rom will stop spinning.
I thought maybe it was the hard drive, but I tried using the hard drive I was using previously, which was and IDE hard drive, but it does the same thing, it just freezes up at the same screen, right before it begins to instal.
I tried the same IDE hard drive on a different system, and I was able to format it and instal win xp just fine, that tells me some settings or something are not correct on the motherboard.
I even tried doing the bios recovery, and same thing, it gets stuck on the win xp agreement to terms page.
Not sure where to post, so I posted in two places
