ps/2 ?? whats that and the keyboard deactivates too

it always deactivates after it asks to install a certain ethernate driver which i let it install

This is PS/2 port. Both keyboard and mouse could be plugged in PS/2 ports and it is universal. USB ports can be a problem on new boards in conjuction with XP. Problem being that needed USB drivers aren't included with XP and generic ones don't work.

Maybe your PC simply freezes?

Try skipping the ethernet driver. You can always install it post-setup.

Getting PS/2 keyboard or USB-PS/2 converter could bypass your problem. My guess is that it is a problem with obvious lack of drivers that XP comes with. (hence the need of f6 drivers and floppy drive)


Other way to solve your problem (permanently) is to slipstream the drivers onto XP setup CD. For that you need 1 blank CD, tool like nLite, allot of PC knowledge and even more patience.


Another thing that comes to my mind is BIOS. There might be setting for USB keyboard support. Try changing that setting if there is one on your board. Also, you can disable on-board ethernet, so XP will skip the drivers that obviously mess with your USB controller.

There also might be BIOS bug that is (hopefully) solved by your motherboard manufacturer. Look for BIOS updates for your board on their website.

And one more thing:

Use 1 VGA. Atleast for setup.

I'm not 100% certain, but I'm bretty sure that SLi technology doesn't support different VGA models. You say that you have one 1 GB and one 512 MB VGA card.. That might be the problem.

Try toggling that settings. If possible, disable USB2.0 support and leave it on legacy only, but do change it back once you manage to install XP and motherboard drivers. Legacy USB (a.k.a. USB 1.1) has extremely slow data transfer rate.

i cannot change it to just support legacy but i mean i cant figure out the problem the vga im susre isnt becuase it worked fine with 2 vga the whole time when i had xp working and before i installed vista i cannot even thing what could be the problem

Once you manage to install it, I advise you to:

- Change BIOS settings to default ones
- Install service pack 3 (if it is XP sp0/1/2)
- Install Motherboard drivers
- Plug back in the second VGA (if you removed it)
- Install VGA drivers (don't install it before Motherboard drivers! That wolud most probably mess up your XP beyond repair)

... and DO restart every time you are advised to.


Anyway, what did you do that made it work?
