    I figured that would cause problems with the other OSes, too, but maybe not... :shrug:

    Hey thanks 01001101 for the heads up on memtest86+. I recieved my replacement Ram (Corsair TWINX1024-3200XLPT 1GB) after returning the bad sticks. So I installed them, tested them, and passed with flying colors. I immediately attempted to Install XP Pro, which went flawlessly, so it was definitely bad Ram that prevented me from install my OS.
    Much thanks to all the poster to this thread. <S>

    Unhappy Re: Windows XP Pro Install Problems.

    Ok, forgive me I just subscribed and cannot determine how to post an issue for a reply, so I am starting here as I have Win XP Pro CLEAN Install issues;

    When I boot from the (upgrade) XP Pro Cd, the program will begin to run and install all the temp drivers, etc... until it comes to the point where it shows (in the bottom line of the monitor window) "Setup is installing Windows". It hangs from here with no further action.

    What do I do?

    Note: The drive is an ATA Series 160GB Maxtor. No partitions exist on the HD. I have selected YES to enabling large drive support when prompted on the beginning of the install.

    HELLLLLP! and sorry if I am stepping on any toes within this particular thread. ...I also need to know how to create on of my own here in this forum...

    From the main forum page, forums.tweaktown.com, scrolll through the diffrent forums and pick the most relevant one for the topic you intend to post about. In the upper left of the forum, you will find a "New Thread" button. Click it and post your problem.

    I can't remember the exact URL, so go to Maxtor's web site (www.maxtor.com) and look around for a drive diagnostic utility run from outide Windows (ie from a Maxtor boot disk or from a DOS disk) and run it on that computer.

    That might be a waste of time, though, as you might just have the drive set up wrong. It it is the only hard drive that system currently has, make sure it is on its own IDE cable and set to Master, both on the cable and on the jumper in the back. If that doesn't work, try setting it to Cable Select (or just CS) on the jumper on the back. If that's not the problem, then try the diagnostic utility.
