Hi All,

Please help me in following issue.
I have problem with my new machine which is having 2.8 MHz 800 FSV
Processor, Asus P4R800-VM Motherboard, 512MB Memory 40GB harddisk.
etc..

After OS installation ( Upto the installation no any problem) Machine
is restarting and halting at XP initial screen.

But If I go to Safe mode , it works fine. I tried disable all the
onboard devices etc wouldn't help me.

But When I install windows 2000 Professional , it works very fine.

I prefer to install Windows XP Pro.

Please help me..

Thanks in advance

I tried Googling on P4R800-VM and WinXP and found this.

The resolution was some kind of ATAPI problem. Try disconnecting
the install CD/DVD and just boot with the hard drive and see
what happens. Now, while there are chipset drivers on the Asus
motherboard CD, I don't see any mention of ATA/IDE drivers, implying
the standard MS ones are supposed to work. If you get booted, you
might want to enter Device Manager, after the ATI chipset drivers
are installed, and see what is being used as a driver for the
hard disk interface.

You may have to copy some portion of the contents of the Asus
motherboard CD, from the CD/DVD drive to the hard disk, while you
are in Win2K, in order to have chipset drivers available when
WinXP is booted. If you didn't have Win2K to work with, it would
be pretty difficult to escape from this mess, as you would need
a network driver, in order to actually be able to download any
further files you might need from here:
