What version of win xp are you trying to install?
And what do you have SATA mode set as in BIOS?
XP pro is the type.
Bios version IDG4510H.86A.0113.2009.0804.1432
ATA/IDE mode = Native
Configure SATA as = IDE
eSATA port = Enable
Thanks for the help. Checked again and disconnected one of my dual monitors, and the front panel headphone and usb connector add on I installed. This baby is stripped. Shut it down and tried it again. Same error
What SP is teh XP?
Also how many modules of RAM to you have? I would try using only one at a time and seeing if you can get XP installed.
Also is the HDD new? it might be worth initializing it on another PC. Although i don't think this is the problem it's worth a try.
My XP pro version is very old, older than sp2 for shure. I pulled a stick of ram out and got the same error. Picking up on your xp version question I read where XD technology needs sp2 to work so I turned it off in bios. I also changed the mobo jumper which gave me access to the Maintenance menu in bios and made sure non xp compatible items were not enabled (in the maintenance menu only).
I mentioned above that I had flashed the upgraded bios to this board while on the old HD. The most current version of xp pro was on that HD. Do you think this new bios version is not compatible with an old version of xp?

99% sure that it is XP causing the issue, you need at least XP SP2. It's not that the BIOS isn't compatible (well im not sure of that) but it is that the boards do not like any XP before SP2.
If you can't get hold off a disk with it, you could slipstream it with teh disk you already have to make a new one. To slipstream it you will need to use Nlite. It isn't too hard to, but when slipstreaming SPs it can be funny, i would say get hold of another disk either SP2 or later or win 7.
Its fixed !! I never imagined a time when newer Intel mobos would require a certain level of OS to work. I loaded a disk with XP pro sp3 and it worked. Hello Intel, this should be printed on the box like software does. A lot of us are homebrew enthusiasts. Thanks for all the help Cpt.Dogfruit and sticking with me.
No problem I am glad you got it sorted!
Tebu, I had the same STOP: 0x0000000A issue and got it resolved in the same way. I had another issue of the same kind once about a year ago with another laptop and it was the same. If you check 0x0000000A instances as they are given at http://0x0000000a.com you'll see that many of them are resolved with service packs or hotfixes. In fact, trying to remove RAM was the right move as well.
