My friend is trying to install XP Home....

He has formateed his Hard Drive, etc (even though he didn't have to) and his computer has all the requirements and more to run XP....

It runs from the cd and enters the blue screen where it loads all the drivers but then freezes when it gets to the starting windows point (still in blue screen setup)

I have upgraded his bios.....

Could anyone pls help.....any answers really appreciated.

Thx All

I'm don't know what the problem could be. You might try copying all the installation files to the hard drive first and running it from there. You'll need to copy the entire 'i386' folder over and run the file 'winnt.exe.'

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
