Try to do a clean install again. Make sure you format first and that there are no scratches or smudges on the disk.

Is this a Windows CD from MS or a recovery or setup disk from IBM?

What was the reason for the reinstall?

So this is happening before setup completes not at the final restart/bootup?

Please answer my other questions.

Is this a genuine MS hologram CD...

or something homemade?

You still haven't answered why you are reinstalling. What was wrong that made you want to reinstall?

Go ahead and try to do a clean install again. Make sure you format first and that there are no scratches or smudges on the disk.

If you get another failure run a chkdsk...

Boot from the Windows CD as you would for a full setup. When the text mode portion of setup starts you will get a prompt in the lower right to press the F6 key. Press the F10 key at this point. This will take you directly to the recovery console.



type chkdsk /r and press enter

Let us know how it goes and if you got as far as running chkdsk of any errors and corrections made.

Try not typing a password. Just hit enter at the password prompt.

Did you try to install again making sure there are no smudges or scratches on the disk?

When you get to the screen with the partitions, delete them then choose to install in unpartitioned space and it will ask you how you want to format. Choose NTFS full.
