I inserted the Windows XP SP2 CD, it was a legit one, and boot from it. Then comes the usual "Setup is inspecting your hardware configuration.". Windows starts copying files when it suddenly stop at one file that I cannot remember except for the letter it begins with, which is "D". I selected retry [ENTER key] and the whole thing continues. The PC restarted and I now while XP is loading, a BSOD appeared. Reboot again and same ting always happen.
Then, I tried to reformat again, the same "Setup is inspecting your hardware configuration." appears but it'll just stop there. The screen will go black/ blank and no blue-screen-with-white-taskbar-at-the-bottom-inspecting-your-hardware appears. OK. Patience is a virtue, I tried again. Same thing, it just go blank. I borrowed my cousins XP CD and same thing happens on whichever of the two drives I put it to.
How could I reformat XP?
Thank you in advance for all the help to come.
NOTE: The CD and DVD drive is not damaged since I could boot in XPRESS Recovery using my Gigabyte CD.
