Hi ive recently upgraded all the parts in my PC and with the old ones i have put together another computer for a friend but. I tried to install windows Xp on it from a CD and it went through the setup process of formatting the HD and copying the files but when the computer restarted after this was completed nothing happened, it just kept asking me to boot from CD press any key, so i have tried restarting the pc without the CD in my DVD drive but all i am fqaced with is a black screen that has a flashing cursor and nothing happens. When i put the CD back in the drive it says boot from CD press any key but when i press a key it flashes for a split second 'setup is inspecting your current hardware configuration' but then does nothing. Please Help
My HD has been recognised in BIOS, I cant type anything when i am faced with the blank screen with the cursor, and i havent left a floppy in the drive. I cannot reload the windows xp setup to delete the partition.
