Hi,
Reinstalled XP Pro - boot up gives "client mac addr" and dhcp with rotating line.  After a minute XP boots up.  There are no conflicts in device manager.  Please advise.

Thanks,
Joe

Looks like it is trying for network boot? Go to the Bios and disable it.

Cheers,

as rajesh says, its trying to boot from the network.  it will try and find  a dhcp server to get an ip address and find a server running a service to boot from, change the boot order to boot from the hard drive

Or you can press ESCAPE whilst that message is displayed to abort Network Boot.

You need to go in to the machine's BIOS and change the Boot order to make sure that the NIC or Network Card is selected as the last option.
