HELP!!!After copying windows files for installation it keeps reinstall

Good day!

I've got one weird problem and im really frustrated the problem is: When I insert the windows cd in the drive, everything works fine until it gets to the part "Setup is inspecting your computer's hardware configuration" then a blank screen appears and then nothing and the cd drive stops working for 5-10min and then it starts working again and I get to the part where I copy files for windows installing. After done copying files the PC restarts and when pc restarts.... everything works fine until I see again "Setup is inspecting your computer's hardware configuration" and throws me to the blue window again to copy files for windows installation.

If anyone has a working solution, please share :)

  1. After it's copied the files, it's normal for it to restart. At that point, don't press a key, when you see the prompt. Just let it continue on, and it'll boot from the hard drive, instead of the CD.

    Yes I know, but I dont press anything and it keeps going into that window :(
  3. Try unplugging the keyboard after it's booted off the CD. You may have tapped a key by accident, or the keyboard may be flaky.

    Also, in the BIOS, verify that the 2nd boot device is the hard drive.
