That is a SeaSonic PSU issue that still hasn't been fixed from either side (DFI or SeaSonic). My suggestion is return that SeaSonic and get an OCZ 600 SLI in return, or their might be a way around your problem, i think?

Pull all components from case.

 

Perform minimum hardware build outside of the case. Set your motherboard on your m/b box or anti-static wrap.

 

Build using only the following;

 

Power supply

Processor+heatsink

Single stick of RAM in orange slot furthest from CPU

Single hard drive

Video Card

PS2 mouse and PS2 keyboard

 

Perform full and proper CMOS clear. Reboot and see if you get a post screen, if so enter BIOS and load optimized defaults. Save, exit and shutdown. Add single optical drive and reboot again. Enter BIOS and set boot order to CDROM, disable, disable or CDROM, hard drive, disable (either works).

 

Reboot, plop in XP disk and you should be good to go (assuming you dont have a bad stick of RAM or faulty CPU)

Update to my issue. Which was the same. I used a ballistic 512 ram and a very old PSU and it booted. It will not oot using a newer or better PSU. Go figure. That was a huge waste of money.
