I have a new system Intel DG965WH with 1GB and a Core 2 Duo E6300 processor with a WD 320 GB SATA drive. When I start the installation of either XP or Media Version XP they both get to the point of loading in memory the necessary files and when you are prompted for "enter" to continue it resets the machine and you start all over again.

Has any one had experience loading either of these operating systems on to this type of system or perhaps can point me in the right direction as to the problem? Could it be memory? I am using a Kingston KVR667D2N5K2/1G which should be ok for this type of mother board as it is 1.8v memory.

Could be bad RAM, a lot of times it causes that error in the initial file copy from the CD to the hard drive.

Memtest is a good diag for memory.

EDIT: You're not just booting from the CD after the computer reboots from the initial setup, are you?
The restart after it finishes copying files over is normal, after that it should continue in a VGA setup screen.

The problem turned out to be both bad memory and a bad SATA (WD3200KS) drive. I picked up the memory, case, power supply, dvd drives and hard drive yesterday and when true 4 PSs (Antec Neo HE430) before I got a good one and now memory and hard drive today....theres hope that the DVD drives will stay good.

I'm not familiar with this Intel board - but did you load the SATA drivers in the beginning of the Windows setups (where it asks you to insert a floppy with the RAID/SCSI drivers)?
