I am attempting to build a new system and have gotten to OS installation.
When I insert the win 7 disc and start the computer, installation proceeds as expected...windows loads files. Once the first screen comes up that is requesting input from me, the computer automatically reboots if any usb devices are plugged in. I can avoid this reboot if i leave the usb devices unplugged, but the computer has no ps/2 ports so this makes any progress past the first input screen impossible.
I have also tried to install vista or xp. Vista has the exact same problem described above, the reboot loop. XP will not force a reboot, but will disable the usb devices, for the same net result - no progress past the first input screen.
Any help would be much appreciated.
