winxp pro installation problem

By b52bomer ·
I did a clean install of winxp pro from the cd. but, after it goes thru the setup and does a reboot the installation stops with the following message
"boot from atapi cd-rom 1. No emulation system type-(00)"
Then goes back to starting setup all over again,checking hardware,installing files,formatting hd and so forth. The computer is as follows
Asus p2b m/b with latest bios upgrade 1012,320mb pc-100 sdram,wd 13.5gig hd,maxtor 4.3hd,viper pro v770 video card, sb sound card. Would like some help on this one

You're supposed to remove the cd before the reboot occurs. Your bios is set to boot from the cdrom first and that's what its doing.

In addition to making sure that you are set to boot from the HD,
I would recommend removing the SB sound card.
There are patches you need from both MS and Creative in order to get some SB cards to work with XP.

Check out the XP section at www.aumha.org for more detailed information.

jillbean is correct. At the first shutdown you must reset your CMOS boot order to reflect the operating system on the hard drive. Normal order is "1.44 floppy-Hard Drive-CDROM". But yours may be different. The important thing is to make the surethat the hard drive is selected before the CDROM in the boot order.
