try that first buy by the sounds of it it looks like the kernel or another system file isnt initializing correctly



just put in the disk and when it says press any key to boot from cd....

press a key and wait for the files to install. then click install windows it should come up with something along the lines of a windows partition is already installed would you wish to repair this say yes and it should be easy from there

Are you doing a full format with the XP PRO then, or are you attempting a repair of XP Home with XP PRO CD? If that works I will be surprised but handy to know.
