I have a SATA drive connected through a Silicon Image SATA controller card to
the MB (Asus-CUV4X-C). Performing a clean install on this drive without
problem going through the PF6 step of installing the SATA driver in the
floppy disk. XP has copied all the files and re-boot to complete the
installation. When re-boot, the system hangs with a blank screen. Have
changed BIOS to boot from the "SCSI bootable device" and same problem. I can
hear XP access the SATA drive for 2 seconds than hang. Anyone knows what I
can do from here?

PS: I have connect the SATA drive to another computer that boots and saw
that XP has installed ONLY a WINDOWS folder (with a lot of files) to this
SATA drive.

I have the Asus-CUV4X-C in another PC and since it is a P3 board with no SATA
connectors, I'll assume that you have some kind of add on SATA card.

I recently had a similar problem on a P4 board. The problem was caused by
using two different types of memory. Kingston HyperX and lesser Kingston
ValueRAM (both DDR400). I removed the ValueRAM and XP booted properly. I was
able to put the ValueRAM back in after Windows was configured and updated.

The problem may be hardware related. Try booting with the minimal hardware
installed. If you are using a SATA card, maybe that is the problem.

I think this model of SATA/MB needs a custom HAl to be installed during the
OS installation....
