Boot up into 200 then put the XP disk in tyour CDROM - if you have auto insert a menu will appear - select "Check Systems Compatability" - this may shed some light on your problem.
I have a ecs k7s5a motherboard. 392 meg of ram. Nvidia geforce 2 video card, sound blaster live value sound card. a 80 gig wd hard drive. dvd burner. I have had a dual boot 2000 and xp system for a long time. But a little while back my pc started freezing up on occasion. I finally had to format the hard drive and start over. But to my surprize after I got 2000 back and then tried to do the xp disk, I would boot off of the disk and windows would say that it was goind to start the installation. That is all it will do.It will not go any farther. I even tried to do the six floppy install. Same thing. I even tried both windows xp home and pro. Neither one will work. I have three pc's in my house. One for me and one for my wife and stepson. The windows xp disk will start the install on both of the other ones but not mine. I have tried differnet hard drives. I have removed one stick of memory out. I have tried the install without my sound card. Done a bios reset. Nothing works. I now have 2000 on my pc running fine, but xp simply will not install.
