The repair attempt arose from a boot failure due to the hard drive acting up (tapping it resolved that boot failure but was running into hangs - hence the repair). part of installation on windows xp home setup comes to a point where the little working animation in the corner continues but nothing happens. you can access your whole file tree and copy stuff to the usb drive (f:\ or e:\), although i found that you need to wait until the install hangs in order Close the notepad and go to the folder C:/windows/inf in command prompt Browse through the files to find the ".inf" which was related to the faulty device.

I unplugged all HD's except for the one I'm installing XP on - no dice.

Thanks again! Try replacing the sata / IDE cables and if it still fails, replace the hard drive. 2 Jalapeno OP Jim9456 Oct 31, 2012 at 2:28 UTC How old You could try holding down the Ctrl key while tapping the F11 Key during POST and initial boot. You always try the repair option on the second page of setup, where it finds previous versions of XP.

i disconnected my NIC and modem and everything's working just fine now. (a bit late, but i searched and couldn't find any help with this, hopefully this will help someone.) nicknomo Ars Tribunus Militum Registered: Mar 14, 2006Posts: 1696 Posted: Tue Aug 17, 2010 9:43 am I've had this problem before. This is the first time I encountered such a problem. It means that the device mentioned in the last few lines is faulty and you have to make the installation skip through it.
any help anyone?Click to expand... http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/windows-xp-home-repair-install-hangs-at-35-minutes-remaining.20255/ Can anyone explain why this is happening?

Its as simple as deleting a simple file which caused the installation to freeze. this contact form Sorry this is long winded and I probably still left out some stuff so let me know if you need any more info.

You could check for this possibility by using an Ubuntu Linux disc to look at what is the Dell hard drive, or you could put the drive in another computer and I then decided to reinstall XP. http://silkiconfinder.com/windows-xp/win-xp-repair-installation-screenshots.html Using the site is easy and fun.

Right now I'm going to try to disable and unplug everything I don't need, as well as disconnect the unneeded sata drives. after swapping memory, hard drive, ect, problem was still there until I swapped the agp card then installation of XP Pro completed with no more probs Max Oliveira likes this. I've gotten past this problem by doing a shift+F10 during the install and looking at the XP install logs (setupapi.log?). I had my router's ethernet cable hooked in to the desktop, though.
