    I recently purchased an ECS K75SA pro and an AMD Athlon 2400+ I formatted the HD and put a fresh install of Win XP Pro (full version). Setup for Windows XP completes and on the first attempt to get into windows after is auto restarts the boot hangs on a file. I told it to record the bootlog (I am able to get into windows in Safe Mode). In Safe Mode i looked at the bootlog. MUP.SYS is the file that appears to be hanging my system.

    This is what I have tried
    - taking all extra harware out (including trying a PCI video card instead of AGP and RAM)
    - enabeling/disabeling all options and peripherals in BIOS (plug and plac, ACPI etc.)
    - resetting CMOS
    - formatting HD, defragmenting and installng XP on a raw partioned drive and an Fdisked drive

    so my brand new mobo, for some reason is causing the system to hang while XP attempts to load MUP.SYS (C:/...Drivers/Mup.sys)

    what can i do to get into windows!? There has to be a way...

    thanks in advance
