I have flashed the BIOS and did a low level scan on my hard drive as when I try to load w2000 or XP my computer freezes during setup. It gets passed the installation files but then freezes at the windows is preparing setup line. I thought when I did a low level scan this would solve the problem and I could start from scratch but the problem stays the same. Help please!

Have you tried deleting the primary partition, then reformatting before trying to install?

My friend had a similar problem when her XP installation hung. She had to start from scratch again. It worked the 2nd time round
