Ive have recently assembled a system for myself- for office use. After successful assembly of parts, my system booted into the bios without any problem. the problem comes when i try to install an OS. i built this pc without replacing the parts like the GPU, DVD Drive and the HardDrive from my previous pc. Due to IDE incompatibility of my current mobo, m trying to install windows through usb. after choosing primary boot, i successfully booted into usb, but after it finishes its first task of 'setup is loading windows files', i only see a black screen with cursor. I'm able to move the pointer but there is nothing to display.
Info : i am using a Ide to sata converter for my hard drive and my bios recognizes the hardware. Ive have tried re-making a bootable usb with different iso but no luck.
Ive even tried winxp but its asking for sata drivers through a floppy which i don't have. any solutions for the black screen and cause for that?
extra info : m able to browse through the files in the harddisk from my UEFI asus bios using EZ flash 2 which makes clear that my hard disk is not burnt or is not recognizable.
my config current :
amd athlon II 270 3.4ghz
ASUS m5a97 R2.0 mobo
2gb ripjawzX ddr3 1333mhz ram - 1 stick
nvidia g210 video card
seagate ide 7200rpm 80gb harddisk
sony ide dvd rom
my previous pc config :
intel p4 2.8ghz
intel d915gav mobo
1gb ddr ram
same gpu, hdd, dvddrive.
