I have been trying for a while now to install XP, but no success. I am open to all suggestions. I am running Windows ME at the moment, and have tried upgrading as well as a clean install, nothing seems to work. I have even removed hardware to make the install simpler, no luck. The installation stops at a blue screen shortly after it copies the initial files and the message "setup is starting windows". I have waited for up to an hour in the hope that something would happen, but alas, nothing. I did however manage to install XP on my laptop, no problems. My hardware is as follows; - Abit KA7 motherboard - AMD Athalon 800Mhz - 512 MB RAM - Fujitsu Harddisk 40GB - ASUS Geforce 3 Card 8200 - Creative Soundblaster Live - Eicon DIVA ISDN PCI card - Realtek Ethernet Card - pinnacle fire wire card - Aopen CD ROM - Aopen CDR - Logitec Cordless Keyboard - Aopen Optical Mouse - Compaq Monitor - Primax scanner - Epson Printer - Microsoft Sidewinder Pro 2 - a cheap plug in microphone There has to be some out there who can help me. Thanks in advance.
