Love the sense of humor. They are new disks, but i get to about 98% loaded and then it starts with several .dll errors and I hit escape to get a little further, then finally it says windows has shut down to prevent damage. I wish you could reach this far, I could use your help.

ok ,did you install winxp on the harddrive in another computer and then try putting it in the Gateway computer ,if this is why you are getting the errors .best to install winxp on a harddrive after you install it in the Gateway .

Let me get this straight... you're loading XP in a different computer (not the gateway) and then trying to pop it into the gateway?
