Re: Win xp clean installation problem
This sounds like a bad sector in the hard drive. Did you do the full NTFS format or the quick format? Big difference. The full format should pick up on the bad sector and won't be able to format the drive. Run a full format and let ke know what happens.

Boot PC from Windows XP installation CD you will be ask to instal fresh copy or repair existing installation - go for "fresh copy" software will analyze you PC and try to find your previous copy of Win XP you will be ask again to repair copy of your existing Windows Xp now go for "Repair" option so installation software restore all Windows files and will keep all your settings*.
This solution is only temporary because IE 7 and 8 will no longer work after restoring - backup all your data and instal fresh copy of Win XP after all and always keep Your Backup up to date!!
Put the HDD in any other computer , creat a folder called XPbackup and copy the XP cd to the folder, Start the XP install from the other computer , when the install stops for CD key , turn of the computer and remove the HDD and put the HDD on the laptop and turn it on , Mostly the installation should start from where it stoped. If the Xp install askes for the source files , browse to the folder created and point to the files. Most of the time XP will install a generic HAL so no need to worry.
put in the windows 2000 or xp disk
98 is not supported by microsoft , youll have many problems online
but you need to format the hard drive , 20 gb is good
with the windows xp cd boot from it
you will see just one letter drive if more delete them and format just one drive, you can use the quick format , so the windows xp files will go on after that, but youll have 30 day trial
Umm...is your laptop crashed??? Usually ntlldr issues ****. try to delete the former installation so a new ntldr file can be installed so as to not conflict with the damaged ntldr file that is on the pc blocking the install. It sounds like your setup is ok...at the very least get another xp cd to make sure the disk is not damaged that you are loading windows from.
