What was your friend trying to do. Did he use the original xp installation disk to delete the system partition (most often c:), recreate it, slow formatting in NTFS file system then reinstallation of XP? At what stage was it freezing exactly.

You can consult microsoft about the installation limit of XP. Very often they allow reinstallation, giving you a code by the phone.

Honestly I have no idea what kind of method he used or when it froze. I wasn't there when he did it. I'll ask him next time I see him, probably already tomorrow or friday.

I'm a little puzzled now... Why do they have an install limit when you can get a free install by phone anyway? Well, it's a good thing for me anyway. :whistling:
