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?!!?

ugh - no 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.

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