ok - im working on a pc (dell) - im trying to reload windows xp home -

i boot from cd - go into setup - formatted (complete) - now when its "copying windows setup files" - it does like a chunk of them, then stalls for a while, cdrom spins down.... sits .... sits - then after a while it starts copying a few more etc etc

i tried a different hard drive - same outcome
i tried a different cdrom - same outcome
i tried a different install xp cd - same outcome

any ideas?!!?

I have had this problem acouple of times, but each time it was the cdrom.

hmmm.....I don't really see what else it could be, motherboard maybe as a weird possiblity.

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 https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
