I'm having problems installing the new XP 64 bit edition OS. I have an AMD Athlon 64 3000+ with an Asus K8V Deluxe motherboard. I downloaded to a floppy the proper SATA 64 bit drivers for my VIA controller from Asus' Web site. When the initial blue setup page appears I hit "F6" and choose the forementioned drivers. The install appears to be successful, although I do get prompted once during the install that a driver hasn't been certifited and it asks if I want to continue installing. Of course, I choose yes, but I've
never seen this during an OS install before. When the install is complete the PC reboots and then blue screens. When running in safe mode I see that it never gets passed acpitabl.dat. I haven't confirmed that my BIOS is up to date so that could be the problem. Has anyone else expierenced this?
