XP Pro installation - Hangs on Saving Settings

  bunz 20:37 18 Jan 2005

Hi there,

I am having trouble with an XP Pro install - it hangs every time with 9 minutes to go, "saving settings."

I have tried with 2 different hard drives with no joy. Machine was running OK with XP Home before.

Help me please!

Thanks =)

Do you have more than one memory chip? If so, remove one and see what happens. It could be a memory problem...

Unfortunately I only have 1 stick of Ram. I might be able to borrow another at the weekend.

check your disk for smudge

The disk seems fine, it's brand new, clean, no scratches (yet).

I'm still having the same problem, have tried different memory, different cds, removed all card other than AGP.

I can't find any reference to this problem on the net, if anyone has any more advice it's very welcome :)

Is this n upgrade over n existing installation? Have you ever had Alcohol (120% or other) on the disk?

If so, you have to uninstall Alcohol.

It's a fresh install, formatted disk.

Uninstall Alcohol? You must be kidding! :D

The most fun part is the reinstallation!! :)

Do you have SATA drives, SCSI devices or any other weirdoes? XP will sometimes go a long way through its installation befor it realises it can't address something
