Hello,

I am trying to boot my self-assembled system for the first time (with new HD) and install XP Pro.

I load all 6 windows setup disks and then my PC shuts itself off shortly after finishing with the last (6th) disk. XP CD is in CDROM ready to go, but never gets accessed. Tried everything, checked the HW setup....WHAT GIVES???

Your suggestions/solutions are greatly appreciated!

Enter the bios and set it to boot from cdrom. Then reboot to the xp cd and setup from there.
