Im trying to load XP pro on a machine yhat previously had 98 se on it. The system Requirements are all good and windows 2000 Pro will load ok. It is an original OEM xp pro disc. What happens is it runs through and formats the disk, Then proceeds to load all set-up files etc etc. Then when it comes to the part saying that it will reboot in 15 seconds and continue set-up, It reboots and the windows xp screen comes up that it is loading with the little scrolling bar and then freezes :confused: ...So close yet so far .. Any ideas :?:

Hmm does this happen everytime? Have you tried more than one times? If not try to reformat and start over. Thats the route i would go.
