windows xp install stops on new hard drive

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
System specs
ECS Elite group km400-m2 motherboard
AMD Anthon xp1800
Old - hard drive western digital 120 gb
New - hard drive Seagate ultra ATA 160 gb
phoenix award bios v6.00pg

I'm replacing my crashed western digital 120 gb ide hard drive with a new seagate 160 gb ultra ADA hard drive, however windows xp install stops.
I boot to the cd and setup loads the needed files, then it says "setup is starting window" to install, but it stalls out there. I tried 2 different windows xp cds and also swapped out the cdrom player. No luck, the install always stops at the same point. I checked the cmos to make sure it recognizes the new larger hard drive and it see both the make, model and correct size. So I'm guessing this motherboard and bios are ok with the new hard drive. Out of ideas to check, something will not let the install begin. Any suggestions???
I appreciate any help, thanks, bobhri

when the setup prompts you to press F6 to load SATA/RAID drivers, press F7, not F6. It will give you the option as to what type of computer you are installing on. Try all of those until one is successful.
