First of all my specs:

Asus p5w deluxe met e6600
Kingston valueselect pc 4200 2*512mb
2 Seagate barracuda 320g in raid0
DVD station plextor en philips
Be Quiet! black power 520W voeding



When i install windows xp i get write errors when he copies the instalfiles to the hdd. When i ignore the allerts en just press ESC every time, the process completes. The PC reboots en continuous with the install of xp.
But i get a big error so the install can not be done and pc has to quit himself. whistling.gif

Another problem i have is the slow boot. Sometimes the splash screen stays 10sec, sometimes 5 min and more...
And at other times i can't get in the bios. When i reboot is that problems most times fixed...

Someone knows what to do, i've tried a lot. Things i read on the internet: disabeling this, disabeling that...

If you ignore all the errors, your system will not work most of the time.

To get rid of the slow POST (boot) process, disable all Q-FAN control in hardware monitor. And in case if you are not using any IDE ports (SATA only, i.e. HDD, DVD all in SATA), disable all IDE detections.

Also disable Firewire (1394) and Jmicron controller in BIOS to avoid some of the XP installation choke ups.

Yeh i know. I already disabled Q-fan, firewire and jmicron in bios.
I can't disable all IDE detections cause dvds are ATAPI.

Did you try to flash your BIOS to either latest version or 1305?

Try this thread: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/sho ... p?t=110193

I guess I was lucky then. :p

It might be worth testing your RAM and the disk drive for errors.
You can download bootable images of Memtest and also I think of Western Digital’s drive testing utility. Also, your Windows XP media CD could be damaged.

I had the same problem and it was one of the reasons why I returned the board.

Installation of windows xp was almost complete and i got a blue screen. Firewire and jmtron were off. The next time i tried to install computer just freezed.

I begin to think that my psu is the guilty one. I read about the exact same problems with the antec neheo psu.
