    I am attempting to install XP Home on a newly constructed PC. I insert the XP disc and boot. I get as far as the screen which says 'please wait while windows formats the partition' and it then justs sits there forever with no activity at all. The progress bar still shows 0% after an hour.

    Can anyone suggest what I can do do solve this?
