Hello everyone. I am trying to install Windows XP on an older computer to use as a secondary. I pop the CD in, restart the computer, wait for the "Press any key to load from CD" press a key, and Windows Setup begins. All the files load, and then right when it gets to the screen where you choose a partition to install to, it immediately restarts the computer. I have no idea what to do.

Thanks in Advance!

If there is nothing on that "older computer" you need, format the Hard Drive. Who knows what malware/virus might be on it. Then boot with your CD.
