XP Pro crashes upon startup after installing ASUS P5QL PRO motherb

Hello everyone. I’m looking for some help and would be grateful if anyone
could spare some advice.

My old motherboard died on me, so I needed to replace it with a new one. Now
that I’ve replaced it, I’m having trouble getting XP Pro SP2 to boot.

First let me state my current setup:
- P5QL PRO Motherboard with Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 (2.4GHz – 1066FSB – 8MB
- 2 HDD (Master) Seagate 160gb and (Slave) Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 200GB
- 2 1GB 128X64 PC2-8500 1066MHz DDR2 DIMM Memory
- E-GeForce 9800 GTX+ (512Mb)
- 650W ATX12V/EPS12V Silent 12CM power supply
- LG Super-Multi DVD drive (GSA-4120B)

After getting everything installed, connected, then recognized by the BIOS,
I try to load Windows XP, but as soon as the XP loading screen comes on,
about 2 seconds later it shows a blue screen error, then reboots (it all
happens so quickly, I can’t read what the error says).

I try starting XP in safe mode, but it seems to look for a long list of
drivers, then reboots without entering XP.

I have the XP Pro install disk, and I think I’ll need to reinstall my OS,
but I just wanted to see if anyone else might have some suggestions as to
what could be wrong, or what my options are. I hear Microsoft no longer
supports XP, so I’m a little wary about my next step.

I’ve tried to select repair installation (via setup XP pro disk), but it
brings me to some kind of DOS-like console. I’m not sure what to do there, as
it looks too advanced for me, so I think my only option is to reinstall XP.

I hope I provided enough information. If I left anything out, let me know
and I’ll do my best to provide additional information. Thanks in advance for
your help and time.
