I have a GA-7ZX-1 motherboard ,700 AMD cpu,320 Ram, 8.4 gig DiamondMax HD
Trying to install XP
Setup stops coping files to the Windows installation Folders
27% is as far as I can get.
Any help would be appreciated

As far as i've ever seen, this motherboard was only used in compaq presarios...anyway, make sure you have the latest BIOS from gigabyte...that your hard drive is zeroed out, and that your installation media has no scratches / smudges on it.
Sometimes it helps to remove everything from the mainboard and run setup bare, then install your devices seperately..also, strange as it may seem, make sure your drives are in the right order, as sometimes XP will screw up initing the hard drive controller if there's no primary master
