Hello,I installed a new hard drive, the only drive, in my computer and installed XP pro. There was a card reader in the computer which was assigned c drive and the local drive was assigned h on the disk. I disconcected the card reader and changed the local disk to c from h in the registery. Now when I turn on the computer the blue screen introducing XP comes on and goes no farther. Can any one help me. DIRTMAN

All the ideas were usefull because they helped me decide what to do. I disconnected the card reader, reformatted the drive, and reinstalled windows xp. Every thing is ok now. I did not have to worry about loseing files because it was a new drive.
Thanks for the help.
Dirtman.
