    Hello,

    Why are you reinstalling ? Were there problems with the machine ? I ask because the problem you're having now is indicative of a possible hardware issue, that being hard drive and or ram.

    What XP Disc are you using, service pack 3 ?

    Are you waiting long enough at the set up screen because that can take a while, I believe that's where it checks all the hardware.

    Its an old machine, my kid wants to play some old games that require XP. Prior it was running windows 7 without an issue.

    XP Home Edition disc.

    It has sat on set up screen for the last hour and half.
