hi i bought a xp cd for my sister for christmas and i've tried to install it, but every time it reboots after copying files to the hd it goes through the same part of the setup, and then asks me to choose a partition to install it on again and it keeps doing that over and over . i would gladly smash it if was mine . the hd in question is completly formatted and has nothing on it at all now because i've tried everything i can think of.
hi trance man i had a very similar prob as yourself found it to be the actual boot up disks i down-loaded from the microsoft site itself twice i had this prob with the boot up disks finally got boot up disks from boot disk.com and they worked just fine. make sure you get the right ones ie home or profressional
