    it's gotten past Collecting Information, Dynamic Update, Preparing Installation and during the Installing Windows portion the PC locks up about halfway through the Installing Devices part. I've rebooted 4 times now and it's done it at about the same time everytime.

    This is a Gateway E-4400 PC that originally had WinNT installed and it currently has 256MB of RAM so I should be okay in that department.

    Any thoughts?

    Also, if it passes memtest try a different XP install disk. It may be having trouble copying a certain file and is locking up as opposed to letting you ignore/retry
