Default Another BIOS problem

I am currently trying to set up bios. Everything goes through fine but I keep on encountering the same problem.

I put the motherboard cd in and if I press any key to have it boot from the cd-rom, I get the error of my hard drive does not support HPA...

If I allow it to boot from the hard disk, the bios just freezes and nothing happens...

any suggestions?

Hmm, before installing Windows you mean?

I'd install windows, and then try to install those drivers. You may find that Windows XP will find drivers nesessary to run everything on your motherboard anyway.
