I am using my windows xp restore disc to reformat my hard drive and reinstall windows. I have a emachines moded with a amdx64 processor and ati x700. a dynex keyboard and razer lachesis mouse. It keeps freezing on the Application installer though and I have to keep restarting and trying. Right now it is frozen OOBE logo- eM 1023/2004 (windows setup installation): install in progress. It was freezing on the other screen (dont remember what it said other then step 2/23 or something) I thought maybe it was my mouse cus it kept freezing on installing that but I unplugged it and still no help. Ive let it run for up to 8 hours and it makes no progress. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I have no clue what to do!
also I tried a different disk a while back and it eventually worked and stopped freezing after restarting a million times during reformat. I do not think it is bad memory because a guy at geek squad looked at it and said it looked fine. I am going to run the memory check on the suse 11.0 disk to make sure though.
