Should be one of two things.
First: Make sure you remove the disk as Windows restarts as it may be on a continuous cycle even after Windows is done loading.
Second: You should check your hard disk for errors and have it repair any bad sectors. This is done by: Booting from XP and choose the Recovery console Once your in DOS (black screen
with a flashing cursor) type in the following commands exactly
" chkdsk /r "(this will check you hard disk for errors, it will take a
while depending on size of your hard disk). Then continue any additional disk repair options. If this all fails then the problem is with a bad hard drive and has to be replaced.
