    hope somebody can help me here cant get my head round this

    ok so ive tried to install 3 different copies of windows xp onto my hard drive, they are all legal by the way.

    i format the drive first it reboots the install works then everytime when it gets to 34 mins left it freezes, and it does the same on all 3 versions.

    anybody any idear what may be causing this

    thanks

    Probably leftover data on the drive. Try partitioning it differently and see what happens.
