    Hello,

    Winxp is old system.

    1 - Burn the iso on a cd and format.

    2 - Do not use Fat. Use NTFS.

    Note: Make sure that your motherboard has support for XP

    ok, check your hdd for bads ...

    if it is ok, then try to:

    1. use a xp+sp3.iso, a good one like this one ==>> link
    2. format your hdd with gParted
    3.a. make a custom nLite-ed iso with the sata drivers
    3.b. change in BIOS sata mode from ide to sata

    hope one of 1-4 will help you!

    Always use NTFS as fat, Fat can only handle files that are 4gb and less. NTFS has added security etc...


    Have you tried pressing F8 upon startup and going into safe mode?
