  • Windows XP Home Install Problem

    I'm installing Windows XP Home on a new system. When I get past the part where it copies the files, the system goes to reboot. When the cds boots again, it's the same thing and doesn't go into GUI mode. If I boot the HDD, nothing happens.

    There is an error text file in the root directory of the HDD that may give you an answer as to what is happening. You will need to boot to DOS using a bootable floppy disk. I can't remember the name of the file, but I can't imagine there will be a great number of file in there with the TXT extension.
