  1. hello :blackeye: i took a heavy hit today. i finally got the installer to work through bios. now when i try to install windows xp. my computer restarts. its at the screen that is blue and has the text in the corner it says time remaining 39. or whatever. But i cannot continue without installing xp. if i can better describe where it leaves off at. its the screen with white text on top. blue main screen. and then set up like you would after going through bios.

    Is the Install CD still in the drive? You will need to take this out so it can boot from the Hard Drive. Otherwise it will continue booting from the CD and trying to install every time.

    Hopefully this takes care of your problem, but if not just post back and we'll get you straightened away.
