I'm trying to install windows xp, after formatting, it goes thru the process of copying the xp files and automatically reboots. Now after rebooting, instead of this installation to continue, it just goes back to the same setup process again i.e right from the beginning again of wanting to format and repeating the same process again. It does not continue with the installation as it normally does. Xp disk is good. no problem with it.
One thing strange I noted is when booting with the XP disk in, it automatically goes thru with the XP setup without asking 'Click any key to boot from CD-Rom'
Any ideas to solve this? Thank you all in advance

The simple answer is a stuck key, or a faulty key signal. Could you post your system specs to give us a little more to go on?

Thanks for the reply. But after hours of troublehooting, i found out that in the bios HDD detection, it was not on Auto. After setting it on Auto, it worked perfect.

Sometimes the easy answers are the hardest to find. Glad you got it sorted out.
