54832d refuses to boot

Question asked by free_electron on Oct 12, 2011
i have an 54832d that cannot boot.
i connected the harddisk in a usb box and the master boot record is corrupt.
i installed a blank harddisk and tried to install windows xp from the cdrom drive. however i get a black screen the moment windows say 'inspecting your computer'
normally it should switch to the familiar blue and white theme to guide you through the install...
I also tried by removing the PCI graphics card and seting the bios to initialise AGP video first ( using external monitor )

I have the original 4 slot board with a separate GPIB and acquisition board, but my machine is windows Xp.
Any pointers ?
