1. Maybe your HDD is getting to die.
2. Try to switch off any RAID in BIOS, and switch you IDE controller into compability mode if it is in you bios (otherwise you need the floppy with you motheboard controller driver) while installing windows)

Hi Thanks for your question
The best and the easiest solution to this is replace the hard drive and install fresh windows. There is nothing wrong with computer itself. It's bad hard drive not letting Operation System Load.
Good Luck

I CAN'T INSTALL A WINDOWS XP SOFTWARE


Thank you for choosing Fixya.com

Yes you can install the Windows XP on P4X266.

Here could be five various steps you can go about.

  • Method 1: Perform a clean install of Windows XP
    Use this method for a clean installation of Windows XP. A clean installation removes all data from your hard disk by repartitioning and reformatting your hard disk and reinstalling the operating system and programs to an empty (clean) hard disk.
  • Method 2: Upgrade to Windows XP
    Use this method if you are upgrading to Windows XP from Microsoft Windows 98, Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition, or Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional.
  • Method 3: Install Windows XP to a new hard disk
    Use this method to install Windows XP to a new hard disk. This is typically done when a new hard disk is installed on your computer.
  • Method 4: Install Windows XP to a new folder (parallel installation)
    Use this method to install Windows XP to a new folder (parallel installation) to either run two operating systems, or to access, repair, or retrieve data from a damaged disk.
  • Method 5: Perform a multiple boot operation
    Use this method to install Windows XP as a separate operating system on your computer. This lets you install more than one operating system on your computer and select which operating system that you want to use every time that you start your computer.

Having Problem formating a hard drive with P4M900-M7 FE board


It sounds like the hard drive is bad, it should not take anywhere near that long to format it. The blue screen that you are getting trying to load xp can also be caused by the hard drive being bad, because it cannot read the information to complete the boot up.

If you have another hard drive sitting around, throw it in and try to install windows on it.

Hope this helps

Problem installation on Windows XP


Three things
1) Do you have enough memory at lest 1Gb
2) Is it a full genuine Windows disk. Some disks out there are a mixture of different things and some cannot find hard drive
3) Try another setup disc and see if it works
Sometimes the disk has a read fault
One last thing to try is Reset BIOS to default

Problems with windows.


  1. Are you using a SATA drive or an IDE(PATA)?
  2. If using SATA, is SATA set up in bios as first boot or second after CDROM?
  3. If using PATA hard drive is the IDE channel working properly? Switch the CDROM and Hard drive ribbon cables on the motherboard.

Hi you will need to contact the manufacturer of the computer,
Dell, Acer, HP etc [ not the motherboard manufacturer] and select their support option. Some manufacturers have a lock code on the hard drive and if you can get the unlock key then you will be ok. The only other option is to replace the hard drive.

Installing new hard drive.


From what it sounds like it is not your motherboard or harddrive. it is the formating of the hard drive. What is the format you are using for your harddrive ? FAT32 or NTFS ? are you Partitioning your drive ? Are you familure with dos commands ?
