Specs: Windows XP, Intel Core 2 Duo/4 GB DDR2
Is brand new system with exception of case, floppy and CD-ROM. Internal SATA HD has been partitioned and formatted. Am supposed to put in CD supplied with new m/b so I can install necessary drivers and/or utilities but the CD-ROM is not recognized. Have tried the clear CMOS trick and have only changed the boot sequence in BIOS (which does note that I have an HP CD-ROM) but then appears not to see it when I try to boot and utilize same???

Have progressed to point where I can get the OS install to begin. This probably would have occurred had I really read all the instructions that came with the m/b. However, now this is where I would have likely ended up anyway. The install begins by copying files it needs, then normally would re-boot and then continue with the install. I am not getting that far, with a screeching halt at a nice "BLUE SCREEN" stating that a problem has been detected and windows has shut down to prevent damage of computer. This is followed by a list of the possible causes. At the bottom of this screen it ends with TECH INFO. *** stop: 0x0000007E & next line *** pci.sys - address F748E0BF. I have various Windows OS CDs: Win98SE, WinXP Home Upgrade, WinXP Home full, and a Windows XP SP2 CD. I have tried to get an install several times using one of these other options with no success. May end up having to go to MSI tech support although I have heard it sucks and is going to require me to disconnect everything and take the m/b out of the case to get to some of the numbers they want to know.
