Ordered my new parts and upgraded my rig.
My old rig was running perfectly fine before this, and my new parts are the mobo, CPU and memory.

After the Windows XP logo there's a very short BSOD, and then the system reboots. If I try to boot normally, it will do the same thing. If I try to boot via safe mode, it stops after loading a bunch of drivers, and asks if I want to skip loading sptd.sys or not. Regardless of if I skip it or not, the system reboots and same loop occurs. Apparently this problem has been linked with daemon tools which I've never used.

Thoughts?

Now running (if it matters)
P8P67 Mobo
i5 2500K CPU
Gskill Ripjaws 1600 DDR3 memory
RAIDMAX RX-700AC PSU
EVGA 9800 Nvidia GT GPU

Are you sure your hardware has Windows XP Support specifically your motherboard chipset?

Which version of XP are you running Home, Pro, Media Center, SP1, SP2, or SP3?

I am not...this is the first I've heard my mobo needs XP support. Could you expand on this?

I'm running SP3 if I'm not mistaken

Have you updated the BIOS on the motherboard? I know it sounds funny on a new machine, but here is a run donw of the latest updates since the release:

P8P67 Beta BIOS 1053
1. Enable support of "Internal PLL Overvoltage" item to allow better CPU Turbo Ratio overclock capability with D2 Stepping processors.
File Size 2.41 (MBytes) 2011/01/05 update

Version 1003

Description P8P67 1003
1. Update CPU ratio item to allow automatic activation of Intel Turbo Boost when CPU Ratio is above the Intel specification.
2. Enhance PCH native SATA performance.
3. Enhance USB 3.0 / PCIE performance.
4. Enhance USB 3.0 compatibility under BIOS setup screen.
5. Enhance USB compatibility.
File Size 2.41 (MBytes) 2011/01/05 update

Version 0804

Description P8P67 0804 BIOS
First Released
File Size 2.39 (MBytes) 2010/12/29 update


Any of the above may contain small minor updates that will make the motherboard work with XP.

How do I install updates without booting?

Also, is this a problem I can fix by booting from a XP CD / installing Windows 7?

BIOS updates can be done if the Operating System cannot be started. Consult with your user manual.

Well I forgot to mention that the mobo doesn't support IDE (which was the port I had for my old DVD drive), and the 1 SATA power cable I have won't reach both my HDD and optical drive.

Unfortunately (well for now) my PSU is modular and I only kept that 1 SATA cable -_-

I ordered the converter earlier today so I guess it'll be a while until I get this resolved.
(Need my mobo DVD to update BIOS)
