Are you installing XP with SP1 or 2? There was an issue that I have experienced personally with SP1 install and USB devices with it freezing at 34minutes. If this sounds familiar, unplug USB devices (especially HID devices such as keyboard and mouse) and let it continue until you need the keyboard and mouse. Plug them back in and you should be fine.

Disregard this if it doesn't fit what's happening :thumbsup:
