First by hitting a ?DELETE? key get into BIOS and make some changes, select Boot from Menu and set Boot Device Priority as First Boot Device DVD ROM and Second HARD DRIVE. Press ESC key and select ?Save Changes and Exit?. Now Insert Your Bootable Windows Xp CD into your Drive and proceed for installation. If your problem is not solved then simply Change the Bootable disk, Disk may get Damage d or in Bad condition. Or there may be Some Hardware Issue Related to your Computer; it may be in DVD ROM, RAM etc.

Verify By opening the cabinet whether your Computer drive is connected with Sata cable or Ide. If there is IDE/SATA cable then try Formatting by Replacing an IDE/SATA cable. This can help you to solve your issue. There may be an issue of Bad CD/DVD disk, go for Changing the disk and try to install windows xp, there may be a readable issue related with your disk. If you receive an error when being read, try first cleaning the CD before looking for a replacement

Re: Pc stuck at Windows Set-up

If there are many drive like DVD, CD ROM, HARD DRIVE more than one is attached to it then sometime this may also prevent you to boot your computer. Set the drive configuration as Master And slave install your operating in Master Drive. Or normally remove all Extra Drive; only Master disk and one Disk Drive verify Jumper setting is put to Master not in slave. Then try to boot your drive, if nothing is seen then go to replacement of IDE/SATA cable. You may also try by changing your disk Drive some time the drive is not able to read your disks ever if it is clean. Happy for help

Re: Pc stuck at Windows Set-up

First format your drive using dos mode, and then try to install the Operating system. Verify that the disk you are using to format your Computer is bootable. Some time there may be a mistake while creating the disk because of while it is not able to boot. Once go for replacing the RAM and then try, some time there may be unmatched frequency due to which computer get stuck at particular location. Or Start your Computer in safe mode and remove the latest installed update or software if any and reboot. See that your computer gets start and update antivirus software and scan your full computer.
