I thought it could of been hardware problems,I have a seperate drive with vista on it and it works fine! Everytime I boot the my pc with the xp drive I get to the welcome screen and a error comes up for a spit second and it reboots and just keeps rebooting. even in safemode it just keeps rebooting. I tried to do a re-install it was going fine,it installed fine rebooted and enter thje setup process untill it got about 3/4 the way through the setup, and guess what! a error came up and rebooted th pc. Im stuck I think its a registry problem but Im not really shure how to fix it Im a bit of a computer dummie if you know what i mean! That stuff Is a bit out of my league If anyone coud help Ill buy ya a beer!
