Im having the same sort of problem but dont want to have to resort to using linux. I can install windows 98SE fine without any hassels whatsoever but if i try to install 2000pro or XPpro everything goes error and bluescreen. Ive got the same mobo as twotired which i just upgraded (with a 2100+) and now i cant do anything to fix it.

i have tried everything that i can think of so a little help would be nice.

Thumbs up

I've managed a clean installation from scratch of XP Pro without any problems on my 8K9A2+ However, I did use my bootable slipstreamed XP-SP1 CD to do the install. Maybe the original XP installation CD has problems with this board?

Unhappy

Your problem is an knowin`windows install issue.
On the 8K9Axx you must change the jck1 Jumper to 133Mhz Bus. Otherwise you can`t install windows or you get any trouble.
This jumper is set to 100 Mhz from the factory.

See below:

The site its in german but the guys there found out this problem.
