  1. Clean SATA HD, recognized in boot/bios... at clean win xp installation start, i hit f6 and install the additional SATA driver, after installation is prepared and the reboot occurs, the windows installation system starts... when the "detecting devices" bar comes up, the computer eventualy hangs up every time...

    on the other hand, a win me installation worked fine..?

    Usually you can power off and turn on the computer and let the setup continue. Windows will skip the device that caused the crash last time.
