Hi
I've just bought some new hardware for my comp and tried to install windows xp professional. I got to the beginning of the 2nd phase of the installation and thats all. I changed my ram settings in bios after finding some information which I thought would help and now my pc turns on but I have a black screen....
I know the xp disc works fine as I used it on my other pc on the same day and that works fine.
If this helps this is what im using at the moment.

ASUS M2N32-SLI DELUXE Motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 6400+
OCZ Revision 2 2 GB PC2-6400 DDR2 Memory
Ive managed to reset the cmos so the black screen problem has gone, but now I manage to get in to the 2nd part of the installation which goes for about 3 mins and then blue screens.
