Question about Microsoft Windows 98 for PC
There could be a memory problem on your pc.
If your cd is damaged or some part of it is unreadable, there will be a message on the screen to tell you that there is/ are corrupt file/s that could not be read. This will prevent the installation to continue.
But in your case, the computer stops the copying process and then hangs. The set-up process uses some memory to copy the files and proceed with the installation.
Bad memory could be the reason why the installation process could not continue.
Try replacing the installed memory module with another memory module that is known working then proceed with the installation.
If the installation is successful, you must replace your memory module. I recomend 512 mb of memory for windows xp.
