freezing during an installation of XP, can usually be attributed to some hardware malfunction. I would try another optical drive first, a poor read of the XP cd or a damaged cd for that matter, can bring an XP install to a screeching halt
My computer freezes during re-installation of XP Pro, and nobody has been able to help me so let me go another way with this problem. Does anybody know how to format a hard drive that is using XP Pro, without using the disk to reinstall XP Pro, because that is not an option. I just want to format my hard drive. It seemed a lot easier with previous versions of Windows, but basically impossible with XP. Anybody know a way to do this?
