Re: problems with reloading xp

Had a similar problem myself with my laptop, but fortunately, my Toshiba
hard drive performs a test of the hardware and indicated that the drive
was on the verge of failure. But, the symptom was very similar in that
the boot process would never make it to the desktop, but would fail and
re-initiate the boot. I also tried reloading using the XP CD, but
still failed. Sounds like a HD failure to me also.

Try checking your BIOS settings. Be sure something hasn't been altered
some how and causing the problem. You might try loading the default

Good luck.
