New HD fresh Install of XP HOME gets stuck in loop!!!
hello, i am of medium skill and have installed a new HD on my Mothers PC so...using a authentic windows xp home disc, the formatting is done like usual, but when the reboot in 15 seconds line runs out and restarts the system, windows installation is not there. it goes back to the partition screens, and does this forever.
i tried changing the sleeve designating MASTER/SLAVE/CS.
the old HD had a sleeve on the CS as well as connecting the SL+MA on the bottom. i thought that was a little weird, but it is an HP Pavillion. so.
Basically , how does one make the loop stop and start the true installation of XP?
