  1. I'm trying to reinstall xp pro on my desktop. It hangs when it gets to "installing drivers" with 35 minutes left. If try to turn it off ans start over it goes back to the same point in the installation. Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks,

    My post should have said "installing devices". Sorry about that.
