Hope i put this in the right spot --
I built a nice gaming system using a Micro board I got my hands on (VIA Apollo chipset w/onboard ES1373); TNT2 32MB; 3Com SC5990-TX; P3 slot 1 667. I put a Silicon SATA PCI card in and tossed a 120GB SSD on it (partition down to 32GB, dont need more than that) - the problem. Every other reboot it seems I get to the Windows startup screen then it goes blank as it should before the desktop but it just hangs with a flashing cursor. A reboot fixes it but of course I get the safemode / normal menu. It did this without any drivers yet installed and continues to do so. Any ideas?
