Actually, if you are using SATA hard drives and you are using Windows XP, you need at least Servive Pack 2 included into the installation package. In general on these boards you need at least Service Pack 2.
Microsoft Windows XP Notice:
If your desktop board includes PCI Express* capability, you must use Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack 2, which includes support for PCI Express.
The BSOD's you are getting might me related to the OS installation disk, whcih does not have SP 2 included.
Best way is to either use a Windows XP installation with SP2 or SP3 included or if you do not have any disk with these service pack included, you can slipstream the Service Pack in the installation package. You can use 'Nlite' software to do this.
Hope this answers your query.
