Re-installation of xp sticks with 34 mins left

Had driver problems, decided to reinstall xp, runs but then sticks with 34 mins left. Am unable to do anything now.

I had a similar hang-up when installing WinME, and in desparation I ejected the CD, then re-inserted it, and the installation picked up from where it had stuck, and continued through to completion. If nothing else is working, try it.

If you can get into safemode try reinstalling any drivers with yellows in device manager. Also try 'repair' of xp click here instead of reinstall (unless this is what you're doing).

Funny you should say that had the same problem myself. The only way round this was to do a clean install. i.e. format drive first.

It still seemed to stick at 34min. but if you leave it instalation will continue. Looking at the left pane shows it is installing drivers.
