Well, just finished my first build. Double checked my connections, Windows installed fine (that I could tell, anyway). So, when I go to install my drivers from my motherboard's CD, I get a BSOD, that says something similar to "Windows was shut down because of ..." Can't remember what it said, exactly =\. I've reinstalled Windows twice now, and the same thing happens when I go to install drivers. When the BSOD comes up, I can't Ctrl+Alt+Delete to restart, I have to use the power button or the reset button to get out of it. When I start back up, it boots past BIOS fine, but doesn't even boot to the Windows loading screen. I've tried Safe Mode, and Last Known Config. When I boot from my Windows disc, and try to do a repair install, there's no option to do a repair install of XP, just to install XP fresh. I also tried hitting R on the main screen, and did a chkdisk, and it said there were one or more errors on the drive. I'm gonna try to reinstall windows again, but do another full format/make 2 separate partitions this time (one for windows/one for docs). Not sure if this is Windows related, or hardware related..
My specs are as follows (too lazy to type them out, so I had an image made before..so I'll just use it):
Edit: Ok, well...I just booted off of my Windows disc, and was gonna go to reinstall windows.. and NOW the repair option came up? WTF? Gonna try that and see if it works....
