    Cannot setup XP with ASUS motherboard

    I recently bought ASUS motherboard (P8Z77-V Pro) and installed in my
    computer with Intel Core i5, 8GB Corsair DDR3, PCIe graphic card, and a
    brand new HDD.
    When I attempted to install OS using Win XP CD (Pro SP3), setup started
    as if normally, but computer crashed even before "loading files" was
    finished with a blue screen saying, "a problem detected and must be shut
    down to protect computer". My repeated attempts resulted in same
    failure. Using other HDDs ended likewise.
    When I tested with other HDDs already loaded with XP or Win2K and used
    with other computers without problems, computer crashed just after
    Windows' logo appeared, this time blue screens were shown only for a
    fraction of second so that I cannot read the messages. After that
    computer was restarted automatically and repeated the same failure.
    I wonder whether the cause of such drastic failure lies in the way BIOS
    has been set up as default or whether something wrong with CPU or
    whether it is something beyond my technical knowledge.
    Any help will be highly appreciated.

    1) You cannot put a hard drive in the machine that came from another and
    expect it to boot. Due to hardware differences booting up would be unlikely.

    2)since your motherboard is a new one there is a good chance XP is not
    even supported and you'd have to install Win7 or Win8.
    It's probable that there are no XP drivers for your hardware.

    3) If you are using the 32bit version of XP...most of your RAM will be
    wasted as the 32bit version of Windows will not be able to utilize more
    than approximately 3.2 gigs of RAM


    That said, you may be able to get XP to install if you look at the BIOS
    and take the "legacy boot" option (or something with similar wording).
    Also, it may work simply by reducing the amount of RAM you have
    installed to perhaps 4 or 2 gigs.


    My suggestion would be to get a 64bit version of Win7 or Win8.


    BTW: If you hate Win8 due to the Metro interface there are plenty of
    utilities out there to give you a more familiar looking GUI.

    Try changing to IDE in the BIOS.

    Windows XP won't understand the new UEFI standard that replaces BIOS.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uefi

    You'll need to go into the BIOS setup screens to disable UEFI. That is,
    you need to revert to legacy BIOS mode. They may hide the differences
    by showing a merged config so you can't switch between UEFI and BIOS.
    According to the manual, disable UEFI mode (and revert to legacy BIOS
    mode. See:

    http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/...8Z77-V_PRO.pdf
    Section 3.7 Boot menu
    page 3-32

    Also make sure you are formatting the HDD using MBR layout and not GPT.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Master_boot_record
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GUID_Partition_Table

    You didn't say how you were formatting the HDD. If you are using the
    partition management functions within the Windows XP setup program then
    delete all partitions, create the partition (as a primary partition) for
    the OS, and have the setup program handle the partitioning and
    formatting of the partitions. Since it only understands MBR then that's
    the layout it'll use. Don't attempt to use technologies (UEFI and GPT)
    that were developed and released after the release date of an OS.

    Be sure to NOT be overclocking during an OS install. Be sure BIOS is
    set to optimal or default settings at the start. Putz around with it
    later.

    Also have a read of Asus' article on limitations when using Windows XP:

    http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/...H77_Series.pdf

    Windows XP Professional comes in 2 bit-wise editions: 32 and 64 bit.
    You didn't mention which one you have. Drivers must match on the
    bit-wise edition of the OS. So when you see the F6 prompt at the
    beginning of Windows XP setup (and you hit it), the drivers you load
    later must match the bit width of the OS; i.e., you can't load 32-bit
    drivers when later prompted if you are installing the 64-bit edition of
    Windows XP Pro. I suspect you have the 32-bit edition of Win XP Pro
    because of mentioning service pack 3. The 64-bit edition is a crippled
    version of Windows Server 2003 with a Windows XP desktop and, I believe,
    the last service pack for that was 2.
