    have you tried messing with the power options in the bios ? It could also be bios virus protection ??? My pc used to freeze during installs because of the virus "feature" so maybe your mobo turns off instead of freezing ????

    Moral to the reply --> Try messing with the bios !

    I just noticed you have a small scsi drive......try removing it for the install and adding it later......I know of a couple of mates who have had troubles with winXP and older scsi drives.

    Are you doing an upgrade or a fresh install ? XP doesn't seem to upgrade too well, ie it doesn't (well hasn't for me anyway) !

    Do you have any idea how far through the installation it gets ?
