Hi

I'm not able to install win2000 on my new system

Asus A7N8X delux bios 1002
Athlon xp 2000 (palomino)
512 mb corsair PC3200
Ati 9500 128mb
HD maxtor 40 GB

setup starts correctly, it loads SCSI drivers, after that i have blank screen and blink cursor but nothing happens

i can succesful install win98 and all works fine

also if i can try to upgrade from 98 to win 2000 setup fail to blank screen in the same way

someone can help me ?

thanks

This is a pretty mysyerious problem if 98 installs but not 2k. Only 2 things come to mind right away. One is that it is a driver problem. Are you using win default drivers for the raid or the latest ones from Asus? The other may be a little far-fetched but I'm sure that 2k loads a lot more stuff into ram when loading than 98 does and thus may hit a bad ram segment. Have you ever oc'ed the ram? Are the memory timings in the bios set by SPD or have you manually selected more aggressive timings? If you have 2 sticks of ram, try running the install with only 1.
