Can someone help me. I have a laptop and tried to install Windows XP on it. After it was partitoned and rebooted it froze at the "finishing installation". I have an IBM Think Pad T21 and I'm not sure whether or not my cd rom is crapping out or if my computer is overheating. Any ideas what could be the problem?
You probably need to upgrade to 512mb of RAM. XP may eventually install with 128mb but I do not think you will be happy with the preformance. That very well could be what is causing it to hang. Everything else looks acceptable.
