Hi all...
i'm currently running XP SP2 on a AMD 3800+ dual-core with 2 gigs of RAM 800MHZ.
My mobo is MSI K9NGM (7252).
the thing is when i try to install windows vista or windows 7 i get BSOD at the very beginning of the installation.
In both cases the error No. is 0x000000F4
And in both cases its on the beginning of the installation (on 7 its right after the dots that builds the windows logo and on vista it is right after thr green bar that run from left to right).
I was able to install XP again with no problems at all....
can someone please help me?
Thanks for advance.

LOL - I just solved this problem for myself today which is very strange that I see this thread.

Go into your BIOS (by directing your attention to this) and go to "Advanced" tab - in there you should see a setting saying "AHCI", make that say "IDE" by pressing enter and selecting "IDE". Reboot. Problem solved.
