Hi, I've just reformatted my desktop. Repartition my hard disk and reinstalled office xp. I'm not sure why but now when I start up the computer, after performing the power on self test it will show a black screen for a couple of minutes. Then a progress bar at the bottom and it will take quite a while ( more than 10 mins) for it to finally go into windows. I've already check that I have all the drivers for the components and I am still in the midst of updating the windows and I have also validated my OS as well. I used the boot disk for my laptop for the reformatting of my desktop as I have couldnt find the boot disk for my desktop, will that cause any problem? Can anyone please tell me whats the likely cause of the problem or what other additional information is required. Thanks

You need to use the right OS install disk for each computer, there's no telling what's on that laptop one

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
