Question about ASUS A7V8X Motherboard
Thanks for help, I am using a "For dist. with new pc" disk. I have also tried a XP upgrade disk both genuine disks. I have put in the mobo as original gave up the ghost. Bought the A7V8X second hand, was from working PC.
Followed your advice about del. the winnt.sif file but can not find it in the I386 dir.
BIOS needs upgrading (preferably latest version 1015.003)...
Select the motherboard model and when prompted select the OS of choice.
Download drivers and utilities while you're at it. Good Luck!

I am having the same problem I am trying a fresh install of windows xp throughout the installation it tells me that it cannot install certain files then when it comes to the actuall installation where it says 39 minutes left it stops and a screen comes up saying that is is shutting down the computer to prevent damage and it has a file name that could not be installed. I have done fresh install on many comeputers and this is the first one that gave me this problem.

Make sure the pin is in correct place for the hard drive ( if in wrong place it will start up and seem like it wants to install but will never complete the install )
