unable to install windows after mobo upgrade

I have upgraded my computer with an MSI MS-6712 KT4V mobo, Athlon 2700+ CPU and Radeon 9200SE graphics card. Having just rebuilt a computer for my son I thought this was going to be easy!
I have disconnected all peripherals and still can't re-install Windows.
When I boot to cd (XP) sometimes Setup starts but stops at various places and just sits there. Other times it loads all the setup files and then says starting Windows, but doesn't.
Can anyone help me please, while I still have some hair left?

This was due to a faulty batch of cpu
