I just installed a new Motherboard and everything appears to be running smoothly. I'm using the same hard drive from my previos computer that has Windows XP Pro installed on it. All the harware is the same from pervious computer (except the motherboard), so I know that it is all in working order.
After the computer posts and runs through the BIOS, it asked me for the Windows set-up disks. I ran through all six diskettes and get to the screen which ask me whether I was to start normally, in safe mode, safe mode with networking and last known successful configuration.
Here's where the problem occurs: no matter which choice I pick, a a blue screen with text on it comes on for half a second (I don't have time to read it at all), then I see the Windows logo for half a second and then the computer "loops" back to the post/boot process.
I ran autochk.exe from a disk to see if that would fix it, but that hasn't helped.
Any ideas on what is causing this and how to remedy it?
I'm running a 2.0 Ghz Pent. 4 on a socket 478 board with 1.24 GB RAM and a GeForce 6200 video card. I have a DVD ROM and CD ROM in serial as well. I've run the system with only 512 RAM and video card w/ no disk drives connected. That doesn't seem to help either.
