Default Having Problem

ok, I installed my new mb, a msi 790FX, and a phenom, and when I go to start up windows, it just goes to the windows xp boot screen then restarts automatically. I'm not sure if I need to update bios for it to supprt the phenom and put back my dual core, or what but when I try to re-install windows it loads the disk and files, and after t says windows is starting up or w/e it gives me a blue screen. plz help asap, im at school and have no other computer at home. edit: there is no beeps or anything.

have a look for your cpu on here and see what bios verson it needs

http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?f...2&maincat_no=1

if everything is ok there, then i think it would be a software related, e.g. an xp error somewhere
