Default just bought a sli mobo and problems...

I just got it and a graphics card since my old one died.

I was reformatting xp and during setup it says to insert the disk labeled nvidia network disk 1 in the D:/ so i put the drivers and utilities disk in cause thats what it needs then it reboots and asks me to put the xp disk in and 5 minutes later the same thing it asks for the nvidia network disk...

What should i do?

You could just say cancel. It gave me the same nonsense earlier today when I did a repair installation of XP, and I canceled the network message, and then 3 minutes later it was looking for nvmini.sys, which I eventually found on my GFX driver disk.

no i tried canceling and it did the same thing restarted and asked that ?

Over and over again...

before it does that the screen flickers and than it restarts.

I think it has something to do with my graphics card.

Its a connect3d x1600 pro 256mb card.
