    Make sure you have the latest version of your BIOS installed on the PC before attempting to install again.

      Insert XP CD while Win2K is running, click
      Browse to winnt32.exe and add the switch

      (winnt32.exe /checkupgradeonly)

      You may have a device installed that XP doesn't like and this may assist in finding it.
