    I have one big problem. I use an a7v mainboard and XPPro. The
    installation first works fine, but after the restart and the network
    installation i am prompted to insert the XP CD. At that point my CDRom
    is not detected anymore!

    Can someone tell me what i can do?

    Every version of windows That's required a "Reboot" before completing has
    had this problem..
    Have you tried turning the computer back on again?..
    I find that SOMETIMES you can get around this problem by simple doing a full
    powerdown&restart of the system, If that doestn work (and you used fat32
    instead of NTFS) then you COULD boot off of a floppy that has ur CD/DVD Rom
    driver on it and copy the winxp CD to your drive

    Hey guys! Dont worry anymore about that topic. I solved it myself.

    The only trick is to upgrade the bios. I now use 1011 the latest
    revision. And now the problem is solved!

    Thanks alot!
