Re: Installing Clean Start Xp

could be a problem with the mainboard. Sometimes if you wait a while it may
work unless you get a no go message right away. If you still can boot into
the old operating system you could try using winnt32 to check for upgrade
compatibility and it may or may not find the problem. I believe that path to
winnt32 is the \i386 folder on the install disk in your cdrom drive. You may
also want to post in the windowsxp.hardware newsgroup. --- Steve
