    Your post was a little jumbled, but you should also supply some more info on your setup.
    Did win98 still work when you decided to upgrade?
    What format did you use, fat16 or fat32?
    Did you use an overlay to get full use of the hard drive size?
    Is the drive compressed?
    What is the partition size of the c partition? Is it to small for xp?
    Are you doing a clean install or an upgrade?
    If you could answer these questions, it might be easier to help you with your problem>

    It is possible that the c: partition is too small with what you already have on it. With less than a gig left Windows is going to try to load itself and create a swap file while uncompressing all of the files on the cd. I would consider deleting the current partitions and using the Winxp cd to repartiotion and format the drive. I would suggest the NTFS format and possibly 2 partitions, one for the os and programs, and one for data. The sizes would be determined by whether you expect to load a lot of programs or accumulate a lot of data. I hope this helps.

    But before h.d without winx9 was partitioned by fdisk at dos
    then win98 easily detected partitoned on h.d than winxp
    how come winxp couldnt detect partitioned on h.d ?
    so i dont think 1.5 gig on drive :C is small for winxp cuz cd disc could carry only 750 mb so only one cd of winxp so if there 's few cds of winxp then too small for 1.5 gig
    is it correct ?:geek:
