Try to give some more hardware details in addition to what you have already listed. By any chance is there a floppy drive on this box ?
That is what's so frustrating... this is a very bare bones system, but yet it's having problems. Literally everything I listed is what's installed. This board does have a integrated graphics solution that I've never heard of, something called SidePort memory. I tried disabling that in the BIOS but it didn't help.
I actually spoke too soon about WinXP install. It's stuck... but it did get past the point of formatting the drive to the actual install portion
Anybody have experience with this particular MSI board (MSI 890GXM-G65)? I think it's a relatively new board that they came out with.
Every hardware component is new except for the DVD burner.
Do you think it's just a compatibility issue, or could one of the components be faulty? I would think if a component was faulty, it wouldn't even POST.
