Your machine has something like USB devices plugged in and the XP install can't deal with this until later. Try unplugging USB printers, web cams, etc.
I just ran a recovery disk on my pc. When I reboot it I am required to complete the initial Windows XP setup. The problem is when I get to ?What?s your computer?s name?? I enter it, click next and nothing happens for a long time. So I decided to let it over night to see if it just need more time. Nothing! I replaced the hard drive presuming that the original HDD was damaged but got stuck in the same spot. Could my recovery disks be bad? I think I have done this procedure once a while back and it worked fine.
Any idea as to what is going on?
