Default Windows XP hangs during Re-installation

Hi,

I have been trying to reinstall Windows XP on my computer and during the initial windows setup it keeps hanging and says 'setup is loading files (Qlogic Qla1280, 64 bit PCI LVD SCSI HBA)

I have formatted the hard drive with kill disk and i have also tried using a different hard disk drive but still keep having the same problem.

Please HELP!!!!

Is your Windows disc scratched?

Is it an old/odd machine that needs specific drivers? Maybe you need to load drivers using F6?

I'm not sure, but just thought I would throw out some ideas to get your thread more attention from others.

Thanks for your replies.

I have changed the DVD Rom drive and it seems to be moving further through the setup stage, but now it seems to be bluring all the words (seems like a graphics issue) Any ideas???

You need the correct driver for your HDD controller which you install with the setup by pressing F6 when prompted, else you could slipstream the driver into a custom XP install disk.

Alternatively change the controller setting in the BIOS to IDE emulation, you can change it back after you've installed the OS and downloaded the correct driver.

Use nLite to slipstream SP3 into a new installation disk and give it a try. Good luck.
