Cant load XP on an older Athlon system. ??

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Kind of a dumb question but Ive had this old AMD athlon 1.0ghz system for a few years now, the HD had crashed about 9 months ago, anyways I have tried to load Windows XP on it for some time, but everytime it gets to formatting the drive and finishing the system says something about an error then starts all over again. Ive tried different hardrives, and have even loaded windows on the same hard drive in different computers with no problems. This PC originaly had Windows Me on it, and Id rather not use ME again, Id rather use XP. Maybe clearing the CMOS would help.
Any ideas on what the problem might be?

Thanks
