Hi, First post so here goes.... Just built a new pc using asus k8n mobo. Formatted both hard disks 40gb maxtor ide hdd and 200gb sata hdd. Installed windows xp on the sata drive. On reboot after the format and file transfer stage, the computer froze on the windows xp loading screen (the one with the logo and the bar the goes across) It doesnt total freeze, the bar keeps going but never gets past that screen. So I booted from cd again, froze in the windows installed on the disk checking of the sata drive. Unplugged the SATA drive and booted from cd fine, installed windows xp on ide drive and installed and booted fine with just the ide. Plugged the sata drive back in and reformatted it so now hav ide with windows, sata as backup. freezes on boot screen?! what could be causing this? how do i fix it?? driving me NUTS!! sorry for the long description!
