I got a new rig and it's been a week since i've been trying to make it work.
I have a asusp8z68 vpro motherboard,seagate 6gb/s 500gb HDD,8gb corsair ram.
I have connected my hdd to 6gb port on the motherboard and the 160gb old hdd to the 3gbport(but have disconnected it since i want to install my OS on 500gb one)
the sata optical drive is connected to an another 3gb port.
the issue is,whenever I try to install xp64bit it does the initial setup and then a bluescreen appears stating check for virus or hardware installation problem things like that. When I tried windows7 it went a bit ahead and stopped at 97% citing reasons like some drivers can't be installed as being corrupt and all.
