Hello, i have MSI 845E mobo, works fine but theres one problem. When i try to intall windows xp, it lets load up the cd setup, formats the disk, copies all neccesary files, but when it restarts to continue the setup, it does not boot. It stays on a black screen with a blinking underscore on the upper left screen. So it does not even try to boot i guess. Everything is completely correct connection wise, i have done a basic device boot, with only the hd, cd,ram, and keyboard. But still the same problem. I have spent 5 hours on this problem, and i have come to the conclusion that it has to be the mobo. But you guys might know if im doing something wrong or if the mobo requires something to be done to it before i can install a OS on the harddrives. Thank you, OH, and the Hard drive does work.
