My system is an AMD 1.6 256ddr ram.   I tried to partition my hard drive so I could do a clean install of WinXP.  At that point I got this message - Runtime error R6003 - integer divide by o.  The system just hangs and I can go no further.  Any help will be appreciated.

Hi lenville,
How did you partition your hard-drive? Using FDISK? Or from the bootable XP CD? While booting from the XP cd, you can delete the partition and then create new partitions. Best is to use a windows 98 bootable floppy, boot from it, then run fdisk. Delete the partition [of course if you have no data on it or if you have backed up your data ], then create a new partition and format it.

I tried booting from winxp cd.  Setup formated c: and copied the setup files needed for winxp.  Then setup displayed it was copying windows configuration.  It proceeded to restart and then displays the message - press any key to boot from cdrom.  After pressing a key, the computer hangs and does nothing.

 I can't run fdisk after booting from win98 boot disk, thats when I get the error message that I previously stated.   Any other suggestions would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Once the setup has copied windows installation files, you don't need to boot from the CD again. It will automatically run the setup from the CD.

Hi amirinamdar,
I know I wouldn't need to boot from the CD again, but setup does not automatically continue.

Did you check that PAQ?
