Cant read the blue screen reboots too fast
Im tryin to re-install winxp on a formatted hd... it was formatted a while back lsot ti and found it a coupel days ago.... When i boot from cd it loads alk the techy crap then it crashes when im on my way to the format page.. reboots too quick and i cant read the blue screen. I know you can set this in windows so it doesnt autoreboot so i can read the screen, but is there a way to do it on a formnatted ntfs hd?
I'm guessin its gonna be a 77 or 7 error, prolly the hd fried but i jsut wanna make sure

Try the utility from the manufacturers website to test the HDD. It might fix any errors on it so that you can again use it.This signature intentionally left blank.

Is the PC old? When we started putting XP on some old PII's they had to have the bios updated or they would re-boot over and over.
