Not saying this is what you have as far as the XP Pro disk you're trying to install with, but mine was a burned copy of XP Pro Corp and it did the same thing. When I was able to get a better burned copy, it installed fine. I will say that, I don't condone the use of utilizing pirated software....ITS WRONG PEOPLE!!!
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
