Default Windows 2K setup crashes repeatedly

I'm trying to install Windows 2K on an oldish machine
ASUS A7VBX MotherBoard
AMD 2000Gh Processor

(It used to work fine)
now we have a new hard drive in and try to install windows 2K Pro.
It starts up fine, inspects the hardware, loads all the files etc.
BUT as soon as it starts the setup "Now starting windows setup" it just shuts down...like the plug is pulled.

I tried turning of the Virus detection in the Bios and also reloading defaults.

What can this be? What else can I try?
Thanks

Ah cool, I got it working, I changed the screencard, I think it was too old and wasn't compatible.

So never mind

Ah bollox, OK, it went through to the next section, then just crashed again...OK, maybe it's the motherboard or the CPU...

Any Suggestions?
