Just did a fresh install of Windows XP Pro...(need help)
My aunt asked me if I could do a fresh install on 2 older PC's that she had because they were both basically filled with spyware and such. So I decided to take them and do a fresh install. The 1st computer was a breeze(the longest part was reformatting the hard drive). Then I got to the 2nd computer, a HP Media Center M7160n. The boot from CD and the reformatting process all happened with ease. Once the computer restarted to "Continue setup". It has a tealish blue screen (the color of the windows install background) and nothing else, except sometimes it shows the cursor. It just sits there and never loads the setup. I've left it there for at least an hour.
Anyone have any ideas? I've tried different versions and even tried to get a new hard drive. Nothing has worked. I am using a Video card with VGA out and a Monitor with DVI in. So im using a converter chord.
Any help much appreciated. Thanks.
