    Hey Bit**** i had similar problem with my MOBO when installing Win2k or XP. I have the KX7-333R with a Ti4600 GF4. What i did was increase my CPU Voltage to 1.79 and that seemed to fix it. Window would setup and will not hang at startup. It might work on yours just make sure you have atleast a 350W PSU. What is it that happens you get a blue screen at setup? Talking about you change adapters blah blah? Oh, and btw you should always install your 4 in 1 first than your other drivers...always. Hope everything goes well...:thumb:

      i try lah and thanks alot but if canot than what can i do ???

        Bit what i would do is not even bother with increasing the voltage. You should bootup with a Win98 Floppy. Run fdisk and do your partitions there (they will be FAT32). Then format one of the partitions...After you the whole format process has been done. Restart your computer...and take out the floppy and boot from your XP cd. Remember to make an array before partioning and rememver to install you RAID drivers by pressing f6 at the very beginning of the XP setup. Try that out instead...:)

            Did you do exactly what i suggested...Run a Minimal Boot from your A: drive (floppy) run fdisk and erase any partions you have made before (if you have any), next partition your HD. I like using two partitions so Partition yours (i have mine as C: 1/3 of my HD and D:2/3 of my HD) after you partition format your C: partion as a FAT32 with your WIN98 bootup floppy. do all of that of course after you made your RAID ARRAYs and selected a bootable HD from Highpoint's BIOS. If you formatted succesfully you are on the go. Pop in your XP cd and Boot from it; install your RAID drivers from Highpoint's floppy and the rest is cool...hopefully. Install as FAT 32 ...'don't bother with D: yet just install Xp into C: and everything goes can always format in Windows.
            GOOD LUCK BIT! :thumb:
