    What did you change in MSconfig? I think we need some more details on what you changed, and were trying to change. Along with what BIOS changes you have made.

    Have you tried with the DVD drive on the other color ports? Is XP installed already, I assume so since you said you messed with msconfig, but not sure as you said your trying to boot the XP CD. You may need to reinstall or repair your System, MSConfig is likely not where you should have been messing around. But you could be ok since I do now know what you were trying to do in there.

    But really all settings that would/should affect your drives is in the BIOS itself

    You can flash right to F7 if you like. Be sure you Get the correct BIOS for you board Model and Rev #. And DO NOT USE @BIOS

    Use Qflash or DOS

    Well I see enhanced memory capabilities added as well as support for some newer CPU's

    Not sure what has happened between my last post and today but F7 has been taken down, at least on the page I am looking at. So maybe you should toss it for now just incase and use F6

    Unhappy Re: Welcome to GIGABYTE Technical Support!

    I have a new MA-78GM-S2H v1.1 motherboard with an AMD Athlon X2 5000 2.6 GHz processor and 2 GB of DDR2
    1066 MHz memory. I have a 160 GB PATA HDD and a 320 GB SATA HDD. I would like to use the onboard
    video instead of a video card. That is the main reason I bought this motherboard.

    When I try to install Windows XP Pro from CD-ROM for the first time, it locks up when Setup tries to
    start Windows. I get the message "Setup is starting Windows" and the DVD-ROM drive stops spinning.
    Eventually the screen turns blue, then black (or sometimes, white). I am trying to install the SCSI
    driver for the SATA drive when Windows installs (F6 when Setup starts).

    So far, I have tried the following:
    1. Updated the BIOS to v6.00PG (latest update, dated 6/15/2008).
    2. Disabled and disconnected the SATA drive to install Windows only to the the PATA drive.
    3. Disconnected the PATA drive and tried to install Windows to the SATA drive in IDE mode.
    4. Disconnected the PATA drive and tried to install Windows to the SATA drive in ACHI mode.
    5. Disabled the onboard video and installed a PCI graphics adapter.
    6. Disabled and disconnected the SATA drive to install Windows only to the the PATA drive with the PCI
    video adapter.
    7. Disconnected the PATA drive and tried to install Windows to the SATA drive in IDE mode with the PCI
    video adapter.
    8. Disconnected the PATA drive and tried to install Windows to the SATA drive in ACHI mode with the
    PCI video adapter.
    9. Moved memory modules to DDR2-1 and DDR2-3 to force memory to single channel mode. I tried this
    both with and without the PCI graphics adapter.

    I want to update the chipset drivers, but I can't do that without installing the OS first. I REALLY need to get Windows installed on this box without further expense.

    I have a GA-MA78GM-S2H board, I have installed 8.8 ATI drivers. I changed bios to vga/hdmi setting. I hook up vga to my pc monitor and hook up my HDTV to HDMI port on the board.When I am in clone mode the PC monitor is fine. The problem I have is my HDTV projects my desktop image however the color is a very bright lime green. Even when I reboot the background that is normally black is bright lime green on my HDTV. Any ideas?
