XP desperately slow to load!

  1. Using Asus A7N8X Deluxe with AMD Athlon 2400. Changed HD to clean new drive and attempted to reinstall XP. So far taken 8 hours and not yet completed the install of XP. Drive checked with Maxtor utility and certified ok after full test. Still loading extremely slowly. Any suggestions?

    I had the exact same board when I was trying to build the system. XP will freeze in install. I gave up and changed to an MSI with no problems,

    This is very odd

    I have same board but running a 2700 XP+.
    I have XP pro installed on a sata drive.
    The only prob I've had so far was I had to install XP with only
    the sata drive installed in order to get it listed as C:\ in XP.
    I wonder what gives with Asus? :confused:
    maybe gremlin's do exist :eek:
