I bought a bigger hard drive and installed into my main computer, then installed my copy of Windows XP. Everything went fine.....no problems what so ever.
The hard drive I took out of the main computer I reformatted to NTFS (it was FAT32 and XP was missing some files and having a hard time anyway). I then took the empty, reformatted hard drive and placed it into my "backup" puter. As I attempt to reload Windows XP, everything goes as normal until I get to the screen that tells me to pick a partition to laod the XP. Then it tells me I already have a copy of "windows" and do I want to delete it and overwrite with the new copy. When I hit yes, the entire process of reformatting, choosing partition, etc just keeps "looping" itself. I cannot get past that point of the install process.
I'm no puter expert by any means, but I have changed, reformatted, reinstalled operating systems on several occasions without any problems. However, I have no idea why this install keeps looping itself and will not let me install it.
