I have a Gigabyte 7VAXP mother board with an AMD atlon XP 2600 & ATI AIW
7500. Ran perfectly under W98. TRying to install Win XP SP2 and the install
freezes at the 34 minute mark and if rebooted gets to the same spot and
freezes again. Win XP original installs without this freeze. I have tried
installign the XP and then upgrading to SP2 but it still freezes. Sure would
like to know what goes on at the 34 minute mark.
