I got a partial winner, looking for that 100%..
currently just installed XP Pro on a Asus K8N on a SATA drive, installation was a success after very careful reading about failed installations.
System boots fine, no software installed as of yet, not online to download any types of updates (MS, Norton, or any others).
My problem is after I do th following the systems hange with a blank screen
The system does its normal routine, until its goes thru the reboot process makes it up to the point where it should reload xp, it stop and gives me a blank screen....
Oh yes the BIOS is set to Default.
