    have tried for the last few days to install Windows XP Pro. on a
    computer with ECS 648 FX-A S478 mother board. I have 512 MB DDR
    PC3200. I have installed the latest BIOS update 648fxa_10c1.bin from
    the manufactor. I have also tried to install WIN ME no luck. The only
    OS that I can install is WIN 2000 Pro. When I try to install WIN XP
    Pro. (clean install or upgrade) it will get the files (the DOS part)
    and when it should go to the part, where you setup your hard drive,
    all I get is a black screen with the cursor blinking. There are no
    Error messages. This is driving me nuts. The computer worked fine
    until I changed the Mother board. PLS. HELP
    Thanks John
