Are you trying to clean install on a formatted HDD? How far does the installation progress before you get a blank screen? Is it a new or old build?

If you are trying to install a 32 Operating system onto a mother board with more than 4 GB of ram it may cause this issue.

I had a similar problem when I last installed XP on a P5NSLI. It couldn't see my SATA drive so couldn't get XP loaded onto it. It would just hang.

I had to specify an additional driver during the initial stage of the install. The driver was contained in the unzipped file 15.25_nforce_winxp32_international_whql.exe . You can get this from the nvidia website.

Of course you'll want the Windows 7 version, and there is probably a version higher than 15.25 now.

For my XP install I specified the driver contained in 15.25_nforce_winxp32_international_whql\IDE\WinXP\sata_ide
