  1. I purchased an used A7N8X-X mobo. Windows XP will not install. When you start install, it loads all drivers and when it says "loading windows" on the bar, it stops and will not go any further. I have used two different xp disks. I can install windows 98 and works great. But no XP. I am using memory, cpu, and video card from previous board. I have used several different video cards and memory sticks.

    A7N8X-X: Bios ver 1010
    AMD Athlon 2400+

    Any ideas, anyone.

    Had same problem when building a computer out of old spares, I changed to a different old motherboard and everything was fine.
