got a strange fault, I'm trying to upgrade my kids PC to XP from 98se, I begin the installation process and every thing is fine until it attempts to restart for the first time during the process, then it just hangs on the setup screen.
Exactly the same thing happens when I try using the 6 floppy disc technique too.
Yep is fully compatible with XP. 2.2ghz Athlon, 1 gig of RAM,I've had XP on it in the past but my kids games wouldn't run on it so i downgraded to 98se, now they are ready for XP so thats why I'm up grading.
Its a strange fault as it happens both when I choose upgrage to XP from within 98se or if I use the XP floppy boot disk, it just gets to the blue set up screen and stops.
Try using a program like Partition magic boot to it at startup view partitions & delete all found (xp leaves a seperate partition Hidden on first part of Hd)after removal close PM down Dont create a partition ,Place win XP cd in tray ready ,Re start using CTRL+Alt+DEL then run Xp to fresh instal direct from Cd It will give option to create partion /format into NTFS for you. it should run right through no problems.
