    I have a Seagate Barracuda ATA IV model ST380021A. Don't know if it's SATA or not. I have a SOYO SY-P4VTP M/B. After I do a clean/new install on a formatted drive, (I even installed the SATA drivers that came w/ the mobo just in case) the computer freezes on reboot after the initial installation where it says "Setup will continue after reboot" or something like that. @ the bootscreen with the logo, the bluish bar scrolls a couple of times and freezes. Does anyone know why? I tried installing at a friends house and it worked fine so I know it's not a harddrive error but I place it in mines and it doesn't work so I create a new install and same problem.. I know it's not a temp issue since it's running < 100 F. THis is a genuine copy of XP. Just in case I used my friends. Same prob. -Thanks.

    Well your motherboard has SATA on it, If you were installing on another machine you should be able to tell if it's SATA (small cable m/b connector) or IDE (large ribbon m/b connector).

    If it is SATA, try using the other port on the motherboard.
    It could also be your ribbon cable if you're using IDE.

    If you could just let us know what connector it has so we can isolate the problem better.

    Nvr mind, after hours searching forums, I found out it was because my mobo doesn't work well w/ SP 2. Got a non SP 2 xp and all is well :) Thanks for all help Inferno :)
