I tried to re-install Windows XP Home Edition over the same existing, and operational, Win XP.
The procedure proceeds through ‘Collecting Information’, ‘Dynamic Update’, ‘Preparing Installation’ and ‘Installing Hardware’. At the ‘Installing Windows step, it launches into Scan Disk and restarts the installation all over, and over, and over. Is there a way to force completion, or abort the new installation without having to reformat the HDD?
System is Homebrew 1.6mhz P4 w/ Intel 845 chip set
