    I'm trying to install XP back onto a friend's virus-ridden laptop. It boots ok, goes into safe mode etc so I saved all her files, just when I boot from CD, it goes 'Setup is inspecting your computers hardware configuration' or words to that effect.. Then it reboots after 10-15 seconds of displaying that.
    Any ideas on how to make it work correctly?

    It's a Packard Bell Easynote C3300.

    Thanks
    - Jack
