last time this happened to me, it was when i was trying to use a hdd that had been loaded with linux...
def. try reformatting the drive(it worked in my case).
I have the Black Box N by Bybyte.com configured with a Via Epia NX15000G motherboard and a 64gb SSD. I have an external DVD drive connected to install WIndows XP. I set the BIOS to boot from the USB - CDROM. When the computer boots and starts the XP install, the computer freezes at the "Setup is inspecting your hardware configuration". I'm completely stumped! DO I need to format the SSD drive? Is there a setting in the BIOS that I need to change?
Thanks in advance
