I got a lapto and a new hardrive when i try to install xp its freezes with the blue screen with "Setup is starting windows" i have tried about 10 times and it keeps freezing there.

I Have my bios set to load HD then cd then removable devices

I have also tried CD then HD then removable devices and it still freezes.

The disc is ok and its a legit copy

any ideas?

Could also be faulty Ram.

Do not have anything plugged into the Computer while trying to Setup XP. Use touchpad not a mouse
