yes, I did try it, and it is just stuck right there (windows loading up). I am think about there is something wrong with the cpu, but at the time I turn on computer, everything was running fine.Originally Posted by v8 scimitar

If you don't know how to burn an ISO read up on it. Its not 100% the same as burning mp3's.
try clearing the NVram being going into the bios and hold down the "alt" kit and hit e than alt + c and try to format it again
Well try and update your BIOS if you have internet connection. Go into your BIOS and Reset to Default Settings. This may help dunno. Try a different version of XP if you can (a completely different CD -- SP1 and SP2). I have a computer I have to install Windows XP Professional SP1 because it does the same thing that happens to you, when I try to install Windows XP Professional SP2. Hope this helps.
have you tried running off the CD going into the setup then to the recovery console... (press R after it is fully initalized rather than pressing entire and reformatting)
then do the followng commands
-brings you to the C:/ folder, rather than C:/Window
-i think that is the command, it should check your HD for errors, if there is one it should fix it, after this is done goto the next step
-fixes the master boot record, so that anything that was corrupted is replaced, (just incase)
-edits the boot record to boot up correctly for yer pc.
after this it should work... although it could be other things, i doubt its somehting like the kernel being corrupted during the install... although, were there any errors during the winxp install? maybe somehting didnt copy... try getting your hands on another winxp disk if what i said doesnt work.

I would definately do a full reinstall and when you format make sure to do a full format and not a quick one. That will make sure that there are no bad sectors. If you are doing a new install, make sure to turn the first boot device back to CD.
this may help, try when installing windows it says to load third party raid driver, do that with the motherboard bios floppy. this should be the problem.
