My friend got a computer that was preinstalled with Windows Home Edition, now he bought the Pro Edition, but it
won't install, it always freezes after the textmode setup has rebooted (at the windows loading screen). The moving green bar freezes at the exactly same spot over and over again.
We have also tried some other Xp's (some modified with nLite) and it freezes at the exact same spot again.
Only the original Home version install without problems. Once at the install-reboot with the Pro version, we inserted a Win98 cd, setup then kept searching the cd for while before freezing....
Seems like there is something on the CD that setup detects as "not factory installed" and just decides to freeze... There are no options in BIOS that suggests it can be turned off.
Any suggestions on how to fix this?
