Mathematiker3 Posted July 30, 2005 Posted July 30, 2005 My new PC: AMD Athlon 64 3500+ Venice DFI LANparty UT nF4 Ultra-D, nForce4 Infineon-Chip/Orig 512MB PC3200 DDR CL3 (2x) Club-3D Radeon X800 XL, 256M Samsung SpinPoint P120 250GB SATA II DVD-ROM Plextor PX-130A be quiet Blackline P5 470W ATX 2.0 I can't install Win2k or WinXP. When I boot the installation CDs (with newest SP) the computer freezes during the system check of the windows setup programm. I don't even get to the point there I can install the SATA drivers. To check whether it is a hardware problem I startet a Knoppix CD (bootable Linux CD, runs Linux without installation to harddisc). And it worked. No problem with Linux. Then I tried to install WinXP64. This worked, too. So, the hardware seems to be ok. But why can't I install WinXP or Win2k. Is there any trick behind that?
