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.'

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
