a couple of ideas Tim changing the motherboard, did you clear cmos beforing installing, are you using an OEM version of xp?
run some ram tests and also the video card if it is an extranal like ati or nvidia. unplug any external hardware like these. and use generic.

Definitely not a hrdware problem as tried another disk with an absolute clean install of windows on and this went through perfectly. so definitely something on H/Drive attempting to do upgrade on causes the problem.

As i still have the old M/Board - presumably if i go to Recovery Console and replace System, Software etc in Windows\System32\config from \System Volume Information\_restore{whatever}\rp??? then i should have it back as it was before i attempted the install/upgrade.

If so any ideas as to what i might disable to make the install/upgrade work on the new Board.

thanks  , was there an operating system previosulsy, I guess as you say you are repairing, ok next time instead of using repair at  setup choose to delete the partition, if you are using an oem xpcd it cannot be re-installed on an existing operating sysytem, oem versions a for brand new hdd new computers..what I do, lazy sod I am lol is slave the hdd and using xp computer management in control panel administrative tools and format it from there.
