I've got an E-machine desktop pc that I'm doing a factory restore on for a customer. After running the 3 CD's and rebooting into the initial XP Home setup it gets to the point where I select the time zone, accept the EULA and enter a name for the computer. At this point I click next and the setup freezes indefinitely. I went as far as running the E-Machine recovery CD's again and again it froze at the exact same point. This time it's been sitting there idle for about 15 minutes.
Any ideas what is causing this or how to get around it?! I really need to deliver this computer to them in the morning since it is a business pc and I'm booked up all day long. I'm stumped.
Also include in this list is any extra cards inside the case, that are not abosolutly needed for boot up.
Then, if you can get past the inital setup login, you can add them back one at t time detecting the new hardware.
