Well my last motherboard started acting up, so I bought an ASUS A8V K8T800PRO. I decided to reformat my hard drive and do a fresh install of Windows while I was at it. Boothing Windows XP installation off a CD, and reformating works fine. When the installation process starts, does the copying files and everything, but then when it needs to reboot before continuing thats where problems arise. The system reboots, but then seems to completely forget that it was installing windows. Just goes back to the main screen of the Windows XP installation disc, and if I again choose where to install to, I get a warning about installing two operating systems to the same partition, even though installation never went through.
Anyone had this problem? Or now a way to get installation to work?
May also be a note that after the bios get through with its deal, and the system goes to boot the Windows XP disc, it takes a long while. I didn't actually time it, but it seems to just hang on a black screen for a good five minutes or so.
