Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
I reformated hd trying to load xp and it stops @ 19% .changed hardrive,still the same ,changed cd rom ,still the same ,could be the ram ,unless some 1 has another idea please post and tx in advance
Is this a new computer (built for vista)? If so, then the most likely culprit is the driver set in XP cannot handle your hardware. so it locks when it gets to that point. Or it could be a read/write error. First try installing again, but delete all existing partitions and make new one, and when you format, do not use quick format. If that doesn't do it, you will most likely need to build a custom windows install cd to make it work. You can slip stream Service Pack 3 in, and that helps. you can also slipstream drivers for your PC into the disc so that the will be available at install time. Check out nLite, at the link below, really good package for doing this.
