XP Pro Installation

  toga 21:23 11 Sep 2005

My computer crashed and I had to re-install XP. However, when I boot from the CD I get a message "Setup is starting windows" the system then hangs.

I tried removing my HDD and placing it in a friends machine, XP installed ok but the system would not boot up when I placed the HDD back in my machine.

I reformatted the HDD to use FAT32 and managed to install WIN 98SE. However, I still get the message above when I try to install XP along side WIN 98SE. Can anyone offer any advice?
