Hello all, I'm helping a friend of mine build his PC. We're now at the point of installing Windows XP, an OEM version. This is how it goes for us.

We make the PC boot from the CD.
Put the Windows XP CD in the DVD drive.
Get to the blue "To set up windows, press enter." screen.
We press enter.
The computer than reboots and goes through the same process.

We can't get the License Agreement page. It keep going through the same loop over and over again. The Motherboard is an ASUS P5K, with an Intel Core Duo. The HDD is a Western Digital 500gb SATA HD. I've tried formating it with my PC using the Disk Management utility. I've tried so many different thing, but to no avail.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Does the OEM XP belong to another PC?

Do you get as far as the prompt to press F6 to load the SATA driver?

Everything is brand new. XP was bought at Micro Center, brand new. I do get that prompt, and I have heard about downloading SATA drivers, but he doesn't have a floppy drive.
