Hi,

I've been using the 4pea+ with XP-Pro (no SP) for over a year. It has
been working flawlessly without any crashes.

Problems began when I changed my Maxtor 60Gb HD for a Hitachi 250Gb
SATA-drive (blue screen, crashes). Thought it might be a SATA-issue and
installed a 160GB ATA (seagate barracuda). Again the system crashes.

Any ideas what could cause the crashes?

Thanks in advance,

Adrian

I formatted with partition magic, and xp (without SP's) can acces all
160 Gb

Windows XP without any service packs installed can properly access
disk drives only up to 137GB in size. Run Disk Management and look at
the capacity of the disk (left side of panel showing graphical
representation of partitions on disks). If the size is not correct,
Windows XP is not set up to correctly access the disk.
