You need to review how to install XP on this new hardware. Microsoft supplied some basic drivers but not for SATA and not for your motherboard. Somewhere in the motherboard manual should be some mention of tapping the F6 key and feeding it some diskette.
If not, pack it up and return as defective.
I have a SATA setup and this is the first install for XP. So here is the set up
P4 3.0gig HTT
Abit uguru mobo 775 chip set
X800 Ati Radeon X800 pro PCIe
IDE cd burner & DVD rom
So i have the SATA set in SATA1 and the bios is at defaults. When i go to istall windows i get to as far installing the drivers then it freezes... i actually just though of something... the bios sets it self up for SATA 2 but i dont know if i am missing anything else?
And why does it freeze?
This is rather frustrating! Please HELP!!!
