Question about Panasonic Toughbook 50 Notebook
It's not uncommon to have problems during install due to ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) I'm not sure about installing XP (in the Army we always had a custom-built image we used) but to get Linux installed (currently posting this from my CF50-J with Ubuntu 10.10 installed) I had to disable all the automatic system management stuff at boot time (APIC, ACPI, APM, etc) then I was able to boot into the installer. You may also want to check in to upgrading the RAM, since some of the CF-50's (like mine) shipped with a paltry 265MB of RAM. I can only imagine how much of a crimp that must put in the OS install process. (I found a 1GB ram chip that works in this system, and it's made a huge difference)
Just be patient when you're working with this dinosaur. She's a slow old girl, but don't let her arthritis and creaky bones fool you; she still packs a punch. Great battery life and rugged construction still maker the Toughbook CF-50 a solid everyday laptop.
