XP installation does not continue to second stage

By mhurleyewor ·
I attempted a clean install of WIN XP on an HP MC 7767c.

The install started normally; formatted the disk; copied files and as usual said that the computer will resart and complete the installation.

However; rather than completing the second part of the install as usual IT SIMPLY restarted the install from the beginning.

How can I proceed to complete the installation?

When the system restarted and displayed the message

Press any key to Boot from CD

did you press any key?

If you did you restarted the process all over again and started the initial hardware detection which involves running the initial Window setup procedure again. :)

Allow the system to restart and do not touch anything.

If that fails to work post back any any modifications made to this unit things like additional RAM and so on could be important here.

Also what is actually being displayed on the monitor before the system restarts from the CD?

Did you reset the Boot Order in BIOS and remove the HDD from the Boot Up List?
