trying to install xp pro on a V2premier machine (www.v2premier.com). It's a P4 2.4ghz with 256 ram. When i try to install Windows XP it freezes in the very beginning, where the screen is blue where it says Setup is Starting Windows (the screen before the partitions are displayed). So i took out the periherals (tv tuner card, modem), disabled onboard audio, lan, usb, and PlugnPlay OS i set to NO in bios. I also changed the memory and the hard drive and still the install freezes. Am i left with the conclusion of a bad motherboard? P.S. - The original hard drive has windows already installed on it and i can boot into it. Everytime i boot into it, it freezes after being on it for like 2 minutes. That was my reasoning for reinstalling XP.
