    My friend is having a problem installing windows XP. It goes to 41% and stays there. He tried installing in onto another computer and it installed fine. We thought it was the HD so we changed it and it's the same problem. We tried it on a different CD drive and nothing. We changed the memory for the heck of it and nothing. I thought it might be that it's over heating but it's staying at 28C. He has a Atholon 64 3700 with an Rx480 neo2 motherboard. Any idea's on what the problem could be?

    Old XP CD? Maybe try slipstreaming SP2 into it before installing.

    Try making a copy of the CD and see if it will install.

    If that doesn't work look for hardware problems.

    My guess is a cd drive that's fucking up.

    IDE channel connectors on the motherboard? I replaced EVERYTHING in a computer of mine, aside from the mobo and processor and XP wouldn't install, no matter what. I'm guessing it's something with the motherboard. Oh well, it was free.
