Installation windows XP hangs at 34 minutes "installing devices"

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I trying to install windows XP SP3 professional edition. While it say Installing devices and "Setup will complete in approximately: 34 Minutes", the installation stops at this point. I waited for almost an hour, and it was still at the same point !

Can someone help ? I never had this problem with my older computer

Here is the specs for the computer that I'm having the problem with

CPU: Q6600
Motherboard: Intel DP35DP
Grahic: 8800GTS 320MB
Hard drive: 500GB WD SATA
RAM: 2GB DDR2 667MHz

When you reboot the PC after it hangs does it start to install all over again or does it start back where it left off?
