Ok, slipstreamed xp pro installation with sp2, Clean Install, inspects hardware config, asks me to press F6 if i want to install SCSI or RAID Drivers. then to press F2 for ASR, and then nothing, the screen hangs, cd and hard drives go idle and after a short while the keyboard stops responding (lights don't change when pressing caps, num lock etc.)
I know for a fact the cd works, I have another computer in the house I can test things on. Hardware is listed below and much of it is brand new (labelled)
MSI K7N2 Delta-L (nforce2) (Brand new)
AMD Athlon XP3000+ Barton 400mhz FSB (Brand New)
Thermaltake Volcano 9 hs/fan
Sapphire Radeon 128MB 9600XT (Brand New)
Seagate Barracuda 120Gb 7200rpm (Brand New)
768mb DDR 3200 RAM: 1x 512 Crucial
1x 256 Samsung
I don't think anything else is relevant hardware wise? if any more information is needed then I can oblige. I have played around in the bios profusely to no avail. Done the obvious things, fail safe set up, turned off caching, turned off all i/o interfaces, unplugged usb devices, turned off anything i could think of etc etc, still the same.
Any help is appreciated, Thanks in advance.
