    I am assembling a new computer with an ASUS M2A-VM Mother Board. I have
    installed SATA CD Drive & SATA Maxtor 330gb HD. The installation goes normal
    until the screen and mouse completly lockup during the "Completing
    Installation" phase when it is about 3/4's complete after the message"Please
    wait while Windows Prepares to Start for the First Time". The
    "Green"progress bar moves across the bottom goes about 3/4's across then
    stops. I have waited for hours & hours nothing happens but lockup. I have
    attempted about 12 times after checking thourghly the BIOS settings and
    installation. I have read some problems have occurred with ATI SB600 chip set
    which the Motherboard has.
    Are there any suggestion how to get around the lockup?

    Near the very beginning of the installation
    you are asked if there are any drivers you need to install.
    At that point you need to install the SATA drivers...

    If you do that , your installation should work

    Problems around that point often relate to video card drivers. What video
    card are you using? Several ATI cards are a problem and you need to supply
    the latest drivers. On the last reboot, go into safe mode and install the
    latest driver. See if that helps.
