    Default GA-MA78GM-S2H XP installation resets all around

    I am a newbe, my config is:

    GA-MA78GM-S2H
    1X2GB RAM 800Mhz Kingston
    Athlon X2 5000+
    1 year old IDE 80 GB Western Digital HD
    6 year old LG DVD/CD reader
    the config is very modest - nothing else on board
    I upgrade the XP installation on HD

    During XP installation ("installing drivers" phase)
    I get very systematic "blue screen" and reboot of the system
    I cannot even run XP in troubleshooting mode
    becouse XP upgrade refuses to run in troubleshooting mode

    any hints, please?

    Please see your other post and see if that helps

    Have you used this XP install CD before or is it a new burn?

    LSD thanks for the advice;
    I followed the rule 'get then new installation"

    On old PC I had a proper OEM XP since 2002
    (Windows upgrade used systematically)

    Thist time I used regular new XP OEM SP2 installation (not trusting Vista)
    and it offered "repair" of the old one. It did not worked

    So I'v put little 320GB (HD Seagate Sata);
    I'v switched off old 80GB HD ATA
    and installed XP with no problem.
    The "pro" is that it works. The "conta" is that
    I have to install all the sw and utilities again.

    What might be the tecnical problem? I have two suspects
    (dont know which more probable):
    1) old windows could no be upgraded, even if win installer offers that, or
    2) old DVD/CD reader on the same ATA controller with HD did not work properly

    Likely 2 was the issue there as you should be able to do a repair install anytime
