I have a new system: SIS 730S Motherboard (Duron CPU on board and Cooler) and Maxtor 40gb hd

The only thing I had to do was place it in the case and install the OS.  I tried Xp pro but it continues to hang at the 35 minute mark (Set up will complete in approximately: 35 min )during installation.  I dont know how to  correct this and continue with the installation.  I even took the mother board out and tried again.. Same thing. Please help. I am falling behind schedule on this project and desperately need assistance..

Thanks in advance

Ruling out cooling issues, have you removed all peripherials and disabled all onboard controllers? (sound, network, usb) disable them and try the installation.
