my bios version is 2.50
and latest from the website is also 2.50, so i have the latest settings...
this is a very wierd problem, im guessing that non of the tech staff have come accross this before...

A hang at 39 minutes is almost certainly a hardware hang. Are you using a USB mouse and/or keyboard during the install?
And yes...you should be able to swap the Floppy Drive from machine to machine.

im using a normal mouse and normal keyboard (non usb connected)
i kno that my usbs have had conflicts with windows xp before...
they are SiS ...
but its never caused any problems during a re-install of windows before ( i've wiped my HD and re-installed twice before)
so i dont think it'd be my usb's
any ideas? im really stumped... i need my comp for my job loll.... and im bloody lost without it

its an evercool fan... there are two clips i think... i've squeezed them and tried to move it but that doesnt work,,,, am i missin somethin
what i dont get is... i only started having the problem after i repaired... i got a blue screen of death... pressed reset.. and it hasnt worked since...
so it has to be memory or processor i think
(ps.. u thik i should try and install vista... and see if its an XP compatability problem?? i doubt it is as XP has run on it for the last 2 years...)

To completely erase all data on the drive(s)
Click this to download Boot and Nuke
Click this for a guide to using Boot and Nuke
Use the autonuke option, which could take 8 hours or so to format a 200 GB Hard Drive, then when you run Windows set up, check it is creating a RAW1 partition on C, if the drive letter is different, restart the PC and it should default to C

Give us the make and model numbers of both machines so we can narrow our searches a little more.

but my computer, the original one i had the problem with is a ASROCK P4S61, SiS 661 chipset or something....
