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.
As last port of call - try the MSi website.
They have highly trained web bods/engineers who run it(at least in UK) who I have used as last resort in past for ideas.

Esp as your board has only just been released not many of us have had chance to set one of those up as yet and learn any startup quirks!

Most all new hardware/software comes with one year free tech support. I learned a lot from this support, making it as valuable as the hardware/software it comes with in many cases.

Windows 7

Well, turned out that the RAM was the problem. I had the same issues with the Core i3, so finally I looked up which RAM modules were tested for the motherboard and got one that was in the list.

I guess I didn't need to return the AMD combo to get a Core i3... would have had a much faster machine, oh well. Just glad that it's functioning now.

I guess testing the memory doesn't reveal incompatibilities? Note to self: next time just buy components that were tested by the manufacturer!
