Install hangs for XP Pro at registering components

On Microsoft » Microsoft XP

8,827 words with 7 Comments; publish: Fri, 06 Jun 2008 09:13:00 GMT; (33178.13, « »)

I have tried and tried to get a new install of XP Pro to go on my system

after having numerous problems with my previous install.(ie. error messages

and the like regarding page faults and ISQL problems). But each and every

time I attempt a fresh install, it goes all the way through to the

Registering Components section and then stops at the 13 minute mark. If

anyone knows what the problem could be, please help. Below are my system

specs.

*ABit Fatal1ty AA8-XE mobo

*Intel P4 3.2GHz CPU

*Antec TruePower 550W ATX12V PSU

*1 GB DDR2 TWIN2X Corsair RAM

*ATI Radeon X850XT 256MB Graphics Card

*Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Platinum Pro Sound Card

    • Can we assume that you are installing XP on a computer that has only the

      minmum of peripheral devices on it? In other words, keyboard, mouse,

      monitor.

    • Had a look at the pages you recommended, and none of the stuff really

      applies. The computer is way past minimum specs, has run a copy of XP Pro for

      about 4 months with no problems, and includes the top components available at

      the time of purchase.

      name of the category within 13 minutes, etc?

    • The section it is in at the 13 minute mark is the Registering Components

      section. It does everything up to that point perfectly (albeit a little

      slowly) and then, when it reaches 13 minutes to go, the screen flashes once

      and the system hangs. The HDD LED still flashes as though it is still being

      written to, but no matter how long I wait, nothing else happens. I know it is

      not my HDD (WD 74GB SATA) as I tried another one, and it was an older,

      SeaGate HDD.

      Previous to my attempted install, I tried playing SW KOTOR2. The program

      hanged, so I ended it using the XP CTRL-ALT-DEL method. After this, the

      system came up with an error message stating that the page file was corrupt

      and therefore I rebooted the system as per instructions on-screen. After the

      reboot, I could not access XP again as more error messages kept coming up,

      such as Memory Allocation Errors and ISQL errors. The CHKDSK application

      attempted to fix the problems at startup, but failed to finish at any time.

      The problems still existed, and I attempted the fresh install through the XP

      reformat and setup procedure that boots directly from CD. This is all the

      info I can think of right now, but if anything else is required, just leave

      it in a post. I appreciate all the help.
