    Make sure all your hardware, to include your ram is compatible with your motherboard. RTFM and check to see if your ram will work. Some motherbaords are picky.
    Also, make sure you have all the appropriate drivers, particularly if you're trying to perform RAID witrh your hard drives. I don't recommend it.
    Is your XP copy legit?

    XP may not be legit, got it from a friend. I have the right driver for the hard drive already.

    Thanks for your reply.
