    I just built my computer from the ground up and I decided to install XP Pro
    x64 on it. Whenever I get to about 7 minutes togo, it's finalizing the
    installtation, the system restarts, and the setup along with it. I get
    taken
    right back to the beginning where I have to reinput all the info(name,
    product key, etc.). This has gone through about 7 times. First off, I do
    have
    a legal copy, with a valid key.there's no going back on it either because
    this is a brand new Maxtor 300GB HDD, with no previous system. I've tried
    everting I can tthink of, changing around the BIOS, repartitioning the
    disk,
    I even reformatted once. PLEASE could anyone tell me how to procede.

  2. Liz:
    When the computer restarts during installation, DO NOT strike any key to
    continue. I've created this loop many times over the years, now when I do it
    I just laugh at myself because it's a hard habit to break.
