Hello guys,
I am trying to install Windows XP.
I start the CD, delete old partitions, create new partitions, choose NTFS as my setup system - than - it starts to format, than it passes files to the computer and load the files and than it restarts.
after all of this - it starts the blue screen format again - am I forgetting something?

Computer Specs:
Mobo: NVidia (cant remember exactly
Ram: 2x256MB Tech Data
HD: WD 3200 AAKS
can't remember GPU and CPU exactly cause it's not my computer, it's my brothers PC..

Thanks in advanced,
Din.

Hi,
For what reason(s) are you re-installing? I'm asking in case the issue that's made you need to re-install is maybe causing a problem with the re-install?
Is it the same XP disc that came with the PC when it was new?

Richard.

Do NOT press any key when the Press any key to boot from CD command appears during the restart.

If you do, the setup process will start all over again.

The command will disappear in a few seconds and the setup process will continue.

---------------------------------------------------------

The entire format and setup process will involve 2 restarts.

After the computer restarts the second time and settles down, you can remove the XP CD from the drive.
