So there are many flavor to this problem from what I can gathered here. I've read many of these type of problem but haven't found any that might help me. Mostly because I can't deinstall any drivers because there are no driver installed yet. So here's my story. I have a brand new Mobo (Asus P5VDC-MX), a P4 2.93 Mhz Skt 775, and 1 memory stick of 1 Gig DDR2 533 Mhz. A brand new, run of the mill DVD-RW (LG) and also a new run of the mill Seagate 160 Gig SATA. Everything is on the Mobo (LAN, VGA, etc ...). Power Supply is also new, and all the voltage check ok on the tester. And I have the latest bios. I'm trying to install Windows XP. It goes thru the preliminary of the install, i.e. loading in memory all the file that he needs, then I get the first screen where I hit Enter to start the install and next you suppose to get the page of the EULA where you hit F8 to accept, well, that page shows up very briefly and then I get my BSOD with Page Fault. In that page it recommend to disabled the cached this and/or the shadow that but I can find any type of option in the bios that look anything remotely like that. As usual the tech at Asus are completely useless. Do you think I have a bad Mobo ? Thanks for any insight you might have on this.
