Urgent! WinXP stops during setup, won't go any further

  1. Hi, guys. I bought a new motherboard, CPU and RAM for upgrade one of my computers. Installed everything easily enough, board recognizes peripherals, all devices work except floppy, everything seemed fine til I began loading WinXP on the harddrive. It will boot to the CD, I fdisked for the cleanest install, formats fine, then starts to load Windows. Copys files to disk, restarts then goes through the splash screen to the first blue Windows screen that says installation will complete in 39 mins. then stops right there. Will not go further, have tried two separate CDs now with the same results. What am I missing? Any help you could provide would be wonderful! TIA
