I have the machine that had some problems with windows update. No update was able to be done.
I decided because of this to repair the windows XP professional.

Did boot from CD
pressed F8 to go to repair the installation.
At 34 minutes the system kept running but nothing happened

My understanding is that is at the hardware part. Removed all non essential hardware.

Problem still exist.

Machine had 4 Raid 1 drives and when reinstalling windowws re installed the drivers for it.

Nothing past the 34 minute mark.

Old Problem, Varying Causes

I would suggest...slipstreaming a CD that contains SP3...and then attempting any install.

Slipstreaming Windows XP To Create a Bootable Windows XP CD or DVD - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/slipstreaming-windows-xp-to-create-bootable-cd/

I would also suggest that you remember that a repair effort may not overcome what is wrong, it's only an attempted fix.

I have removed every kind of external hardware and nothing.

Still shows at 34 minutes.

This machine had windows XP Professionals SP1.

I'm getting frustrated. Every time i try and do something result is still the same.
