I have a abit kv7-7 motherboard with 3ghz amd with 512 gig ram. Cannot get xp to load ont he hard drive it is 8gig. It starts to load, but when it comes up to repair, install, or exit it shuts off the computer. Little confused as to why.
I can try and suggest you check the cables from you CD-ROM, any sort of damage the CD might have.
Or then again, if your Hard Drive is SATA connected, then you'll need to load the SATA controler (F6 on the windows instalation)
And, in last case, either upgrade your bios or try a different CD-ROM drive unit.
But I would defenatly put my money on the cables.

you can't the system resources on the xp pc required to run xp are a lot less than what is needed to run windows vista.
how much ram and how much disk space !
it says 512 Mb ram but it will run like a snail
15 Gig of free hard disk space and a 20 Gig hard drive https://support.microsoft.com/en-au/kb/919183
DO you have an upgrade copy of Vista ?
I don't think that you need a bios upgrade for a 'virus' infection - they generally don't go there, as modifications to the flash memory can be tricky and difficult without knowing the flash type; viruses generally affect OS areas as being much easier.
There is a glitch on those AV7 boards ata controler I think. Check the website for the new drivers supposedly they help, but all they did was crash my raid after I installed them. I ended up cloning the whole raid over to a single large sata drive and put in an ide to sata card (non raid unfortunately) and the problem went away. I only had the problem under very heavy disk loading. It seemed to not be quite so bad when I added some additional cooling aimed at the motherboard. As to if it will help your software problem I am unsure. However the only time mine did the mini dump was when I was doing heavy video editing work and after nixing the raid it fixed it, But then again a bad drive in a raid can cause that also.
hello what brand is ur hard drive. western digital has software that can scan ur hard drive for possible hard ware errors, as does seagate. in addition ur motherboard may have a test that may help (smart something not sure but good luck)
first update the bios of your system.
Then remove the drivers using safe mode, Download new drivers from nvidai web site ( do not use the drivers on the vga's cd). Disable any antivirus software and try again.
