Trouble with M. Bourgie's tier 1 build.
Hi,

This is the build I am referring to:

http://www.hardware-revolution.com/budge...july-2011/

This is my first time building a new computer. I watched videos and read tutorials and it appears the connections are good. All components seem to run fine on first power up, but I get stuck at "verifying dmi data." I powered down, disconnected sata HDD, and rebooted. Windows setup begins but I can't use my ps2 keyboard when asked to hit enter to continue setup. Unplugging keyboard and reinserting, I see the keyboard leds briefly flash.

What am I missing? I'll be more than happy to provide more info.

CPU AMD|ATH II X3 455 3.3G AM3 RT
CASE ROSEWILL|CHALLENGER RT
Motherboard GIGABYTE | GA-78LMT-S2P R
VGA SAPPHIRE Radeon HD6870
PSU ANTEC| 520W HCG-520 RTL
MEMORY 2Gx2|GSKILL F3-10666CL9D-4GBNS
HD 500G|WD SATAIII
DVD BRN ASUS | DRW

Thanks.

RE: Trouble with M. Bourgie's tier 1 build.
Is this a fresh install of Windows or you cloned a different HDD to this?
Not sure about your mobo but how many beeps do you hear on boot up?

On the other hand, you can try to reset the CMOS and see what happens afterward.

-Fresh install of XP from retail disk purchased with old computer.
-One beep.

RE: Trouble with M. Bourgie's tier 1 build.
I have a friend that says my problems are because I'm trying to install windows XP with a sata HDD. Does this make sense with the symptoms I mentioned?

This link might help. It seems xp doesn't include sata drivers.

Installing XP on a SATA hard drive shouldn't cause problems, but looking at the guide R!ch@rd posted above couldn't hurt.

I've never heard of such thing until now but R!ch@rd's post might help.

I read through the article but don't have access to computer with XP at the moment. I don't mind buying win 7 as long as I know for sure that is the problem.

I appreciate the help thus far as well as any other suggestions.

RE: Trouble with M. Bourgie's tier 1 build.
Have you try to reset the CMOS yet?

Did you install the windows xp with this machine or you installed it with something else then used this same HDD for the new machine?

I reset the cmos and it brings me back to the same thing. Win xp was installed on a different machine with a different HDD. The SATA drive with the new computer is brand new, as are all the parts.
