    Via Epia Windows XP Install Problem


    I have the Black Box N by configured with a Via Epia NX15000G motherboard and a 64gb SSD. I have an external DVD drive connected to install WIndows XP. I set the BIOS to boot from the USB - CDROM. When the computer boots and starts the XP install, the computer freezes at the "Setup is inspecting your hardware configuration". I'm completely stumped! DO I need to format the SSD drive? Is there a setting in the BIOS that I need to change?

    Thanks in advance
