Question about Intel Motherboard
Ok so Microcrap hasn't been able to help and its an odd problem.
So the basics first, I have a pc I built from scratch that I originally had Server 2003 installed on. Stats:
300 Watt power supply
Three Hard Drives
IDE Legacy:6gb-os drive
SATA: 120gb-program drive
2gigs of ram PC400 DDR2
Motherboard: MSI 915G Neo 2
Video: Onboard Intel 915G chip
PCIE 16X slot ATI Radeon Saphire 2800 pro HD 256mb onboard ram
DVD Drive LG dual Layer 16x
Intel Dual Core Extreme 2.8 ghz
Ok so this computer has run fine, however recently I switched cases and decided to swap over to XP SP3 with a clean install on the OS drive.
I set it up tested the computer, it starts up, it posts, I can get to cmos/bios menu, even get the drives to load. Its exactly as it was in the old case. I put in the XP SP3 disc, it loads, right before it starts windows, the entire computer restarts.
Have you tried safe mode? What is in the event logs?

Clean install ............. floppy... fdisk deleting all partitions first.... and then making a partition of the whole disk.. then formatting.... then do the install and of course ntfs.... and see how that goes
