Due to problems I decided to re-install XP Pro and formatted my Hard Drive. When I ran the installation it got as far as "Installing Devices" with 34/35 minutes left to run and then stopped. I have tried both XP Home and XP Pro with identical results.
Following advice from other Forums I have removed all addon hardware, leaving 1 x DVD Rom; 1 x SATA Hard Drive and 1 x Graphics Card. I have also removed all but 1 stick of memory but still I cannot get the installation programme to get past Installing Devices.
Its one thing to have problems WITH Windows but its another to not even be able to install it.
Any clues - advice - suggestions etc wioll be gratefully received
