  1. I just started installing windows and it freezes when it is examining my hard drive. It says "examing 95394 MB disk 0 at Id 0 on Bus 0 on atapi" and it does nothing.

    SysSpec:

    Asus p4pe
    intel 3.0e
    Maxtor 100 gig sata
    evga 6600gt
    1gig ramm

    Have you checked the connections from the HDD to the motherboard? Sometimes they can wiggle loose. That would be my first test, the second would be changing out the ribbons to make sure they aren't defective.

    BTW
