Installed everything, went through post fine. Tried to install Winxp pro and got error 7.
Read any Pci cards could be the problem. So took out all cards and tried with the onboard video, error 7.
Went to Microsoft and learned bad ram can be the cause. Tried both sticks separate, same error. So maybe both are bad?
Ran 1 pass of memtest 86+, no errors.
So tried a couple other things.
Hooked up old hard drive to new rig and tried reinstalling winxp, error 7.
The old drive is slow and hangs but I'm still able to post this.
Gonna run more passes of Memtest.
Could not having the Mb/cpu/ram configured right cause this?
