I'm trying to do a fresh install of XP on a new HDD. When I boot from the XP CD, I get to the 'enter to install, r for recovery, F3 to exit' screen, and my keyboard locks up. Won't let me ctrl + alt + delete, or even turn caps/nunbers lock on and off. I've already tried a different keyboard, including the one I'm typing on now, and different RAM, as well as both of the CD drives installed in the machine. Specs of the system are:
1.2 GHz Celeron
160 MB Maxtor EIDE HDD (new)
1 256 MB RAM stick
1 128 MB RAM stick
Not sure of the specs, but a CD-ROM and a CD Re-Writer drive.
Every thing was working fine before I tried to install XP on the new disk.
