|StuartS is correct about the BIOS. For future use there are two things you can do to read the POST screens. |
First enter the BIOS screens (Esc) and disable any logos. BTW, did you set values in the BIOS when first firing up that new board?
Second, hit the Pause key to freeze the screens. Hit the space bar to resume.
If you slipstream SP3 into the files on your WinXP CD then you won't have that issue to deal with.
That said, I recommend multiple partitions on most hard drives. Look at the link below for ideas on pratitioning.
