Make sure your CPU heatsink is on snug. Second make sure that you have a bootable CD, and that you have the bios configured to check the CD first, prior to the hard drive.

I really think it is a heat issue, keep the case off, and ensure that the heatsink fan is blowing, and that there is absolutely no space between the cpu and heatsink.

Could be heat or it also could mean a BIOS update. I know when I had a motherboard that didn't support a specific CPU *E8200* I was getting freeze ups during boot up or during install of windows.

Needed a BIOS update just to get it working normal again.

EDIT - Wouldn't hurt to do a CMOS reset either
