Hi all- I just built my first computer, and am trying to install XP Corp from scratch, but everytime I start up I get a CD Boot Memory overflow error.
I have a copy of XP Pro upgrade, and that works fine until setup starts looking for a previous version of Windows. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated as I'm sitting here starting at 2200$ in blank monitors :)

Is it a legal copy of XP Corp that you're trying to install? About the XP Pro Upgrade, you dont have a Win98 disc kicking around, or a friend that would loan you his?

How much memory do you have? Is it setup correctly in the BIOS? Have you tried running memtest86?

Wait a minute ... are you using the original copy of XP Professional? The other thing to check is whether your hardware is on Microsoft's hardware compatibility list. Go to
www.microsoft.com and do a search on 'XP hardware compatibility list'. Some motherboards and CD-ROM drives have problems with Windows XP.
