I am installing Windows XP into my PC, was with Win 98. Right before the install finishes the PC reboots and begins the install again. This continues into a Loop operation with no end.  I can not get it to stop looping.  I have been able to look at the settings (boot - delete) but after I save I am back to the same result.

There is a possibility you may have a problem with your RAM.  Download the diagnostic program from www.memtest86.com and run it - if it fails, you have bad RAM.  If it doesn't, you might have bad RAM, but it will take a swap with working RAM to be sure.
