MSI P6N Diamond, Windows XP install problem
Posted on 2007-11-29
MSI P6N Diamond MOBO, BIOS ver 1.3
Crucial Balistix 800Mhz Memory, 4 x 1 GB
Western Digital 75Gb 10K RPM Raptor Drives x2 (this is an Stripe RAID)
XFX 8600 GTS SLI video Card x 2
ULTRA 600W PSU 36A on the 12v Rail
Changed the BIOS from IDE TO RAID. Then I enabled all 6 SATA.
I ran the RAID UTIL and moved my 2 HDD together and set it as STRIPE.
I used WIndows XP HOME install. IT installs very fast.... I enter my CD KEY, I tell it to use common network settings.... It gets done doing the install and it reboots the first time... this is when it goes to the Windows LOGO screen for the first time....
At this point it only stays on the logo screen for a second or two and then it what seems to be an BSOD flash and the system reboots.
It then goes into a reboot cycle and wont stop. Ever time it gets to Logo Screen it goes POOF.
I tried to get to Safe mode and it does teh SAME THING.
Cannot get to safe mode witlh command prompt either.
I have taken all ram out save 1 stick, and the 2nd video card out. Same issue.
I have tried a reinstall doing a format not a quick format. Same
I used the drivers fro the RAID that are currently on the CD that came with the system.
