Yes, you're right the manual has an oversight regarding the 100 MHz position. You might try the following SW1 2-3 and SW2 2-3 (this is the only not shown combination). At the first start, notice the displayed CPU info on the screen.
- 128 MB memory it's too small for windows XP. It works, but it'll crawl.
- The on-line manual lacks the BIOS menus. So, check out that in the boot order that PATA IDE it's on the second position after CD-ROM.
- When you start the PC, goto BIOS and select PC Health Menu and monitor the CPU's temperature.
- For your Athlon 2 GHz (it's a Palomino) make sure that you select 133 MHz position.
Now, some suggestions:
1. If the temperature it's too high make sure that you installed the CPU's HeatSink Fanrectly. Also, did you use any thermal compound ?
2. Run a memory diagnostic utility. Here's Memtest86+ utility. It'll prepare a bootable diskette. Insert the diskette and make sure that in BIOS floppy drive is the first bootable device. Let the test run at least two complete iterations.

Just bought a new KM4M-V MSI M/B, 2Ghz Athlon, pc2700 Ram 128mb, all new kit.
Hard drive and CD recognised in bios ok, boot from XP cd (clean install) stops at first starting windows message.
Motherboard was supplied with SATA cables and driver disk, but I am only using PATA (ide)
I have read articals about this problem, but do not understand what they are suggesting.
Also, I bought this board to try and use a 1.3Ghz Duron(100mghz) but the manual, although it mentions this speed, does not show jumper positions to achieve this.
