    DG31PR Hanging on Windows Xp install

    prock

      Trying to install Windows XP Pro on DG31PR. I system keeps hanging on "setup is starting windows". I have tried everything i know.

      1. Change HDD both IDE and SATA

      2. Updated BIOS

      3. Changed CD ROM

      4. Changed memory

      5. Changed disks  and nothing

       

      Strangely Vista installs fine . So i am assuming it is a driver issue, even stranger XP was on this system at one time. Anyone have any ideas?

          Most of the times, those system locks during the operating system installation are related to memory, processor or hard drives.

           

          However taking under consideration that Microsoft* Windows* Vista* works fine, I would say that this is a software related problem.

           

          This motherboard is a classic series motherboard with legacy and common interfaces, so the operating system does not require any third party driver to be loaded during the operating system installation.

           

          I would suggest you to test another installation CD of Microsoft* Windows* XP making sure that Service Pack 2 is embedded on the installation CD (if you are using one CD with o Service pack or Service pack 1 this may not work)
