I'm trying to install xp 64. after the pc has copied the files from the disc and restarts , the pc hangs on post (before the installation (setup))... when it hangs , some random numbers/letters disappear.....then it just stays there with the blinking _
i tried 2 different xp64 discs . same thing. win7 64 bit works , win xp 32 bit works also
i recently flashed to the latest bios .... but isn't that supposed to make things better?
pc: g41m-es2l rev 1.0 q9550 ati 5850 3gb ram 1x2gb , 1x1gb 3 hard drives , 1 sata spinpoint f2, and 2 other ide hdds

When the random letters and numbers appear, is it a blue screen (BSOD)?
nope , just hangs there with the blinking " _ " .
i am installing other windows right now to revert back to previous bios . Somehow I doubt that will help
