Having re formatted my HDD and booted up from the XP cd I get as far as "windows is inspecting your system configuration" screen and then the screen goes blank and nothing else happens. I am well and truly up the creek at the moment. Any ideas?

When you reformatted you HDD I presume you used NTFS?

Are you attempting to install on a desktop or laptop?

Is the XP CD a full version?

Its a desktop and yes NTFS file system

I am not sure how you have gone about the formatting, but I have found that it is best to completely wipe the HDD using this click here This is a free download. Create a bootable floppy/cd with this, erase the drive and start the XP install again.
