About the same problem here!
I did both a clean instal and an overwrite of XP with build 5600.16 both
with the same problem.
instalation is hangin in "completing installation" (no percentage
and restarts my PC. When it restarts, the old fashion blue screen appears
for a split second and restarts again. I believe it is an memory error, but
the blue disappears to fast to read it.
I tried a lot , everything at standard clockspeeds and stripped my Pc to the
absolute minimum (PS, MB, CPU intel 2.4c, 40 gig IDE HDD, AGP X1600pro,
1024MB PC3200 memory, DVD-RW) but nothing works.
I'm out of suggestions, anyone else?
Thanks in advance and regards,
