    When I have problems installing windows , it usually hangs
    at a certain point, it's usually cause by faulty system memory.
    I would remove one or your memory modules, try to install windows
    again if it fails swap out the memory modules again. It's mostly
    trial and error to pinpoint which of your modules is bad. If that
    fails try putting the modules in a different slot (slot1/2/3)
    (try different configurations). The odds's of all your memory
    modules being bad are low. That's what I've found out to be
    the main culprit of window's not installing.

    that did not help. could have anything to do with the fact that my xp might not be x64 bit?

    thanks
