windows wont install
Posted on 2003-11-09
Ok building a new system, trying to install windows XP from dos, and everytime it loads up install stuff, then on the blue screen at the bottom it says starting windows......then the machine reboots to do the same thing over.....hell it even does it with windows 98 says preparing to start windows or something, then reboots...what the hell is up.
Kingston 512mb DDR400
Pentium 4 2.8ghz 800mhz FSB
Maxtor 40 gig 7200rpm
Radeon 64mb AGPx4
USR PCI modem
USB2.0 for front panel usb access (wired to the board)
300Watt power supply, yeah dont shoot me, wasnt my call I wanted a 450 watt.
anyways, any ideas why it would constantly reboot when trying to install windows?
