Purchased system recently:
Asus P7P55D EVO
Western Digital 750 Gb SATA
Cosair 2 Gb(CM3X2G1333C9)-2 total
Cosair 650watt power Supply
Intel i5 2.6 GHz processor
Tried to load Win XP 32 bit and got blue screen several times
Tried to load Vista 32 bit and hangs up for over 30min to 1 hr on loading files.
Tried one stick of memory with each without luck.
Any help appreciated. System runs without overheating.
thanks for the reply. I have a pair of 2Gb corsair ddr3 13333 ram. Surprising that i got vista ultimate 32 bit to eventually load. On windows compatibility site they list the asus p7p55 as not compatible with xp or vista basic, but with vista 64 bit. ram chips now in place and working. Seems like this is a software/hardware compatibility issue. Never changed the default settings in bios except did disable usb at one time but this did not help. My xp cd's were from 2002 and three separate copies allowed me to only to load the setup files before the blue screen of death.

Hey, I got WIN XP 64 bit to run on this MB. The issue was with the drive controller. By selecting IDE Mode with compatibility XP was able to see the controller and did not blue screen.
