Mayhem has struck once again and my PC is suffering the wrath of it. From the past 2 weeks I have tried umpteenth times to get its health restored to normal but all the efforts have gone down the drains. Time’s wasting and I am gasping for some breath as I format it now frequently hoping some miracle would do the trick. I was lucky enough to get all the data backup by installing Windows 2000 Professional (only this version gets installed properly). I still havent able to find the cure for the notorious 34 minute freezing problem while installing Windows XP professional. It perfectly hangs up everytime showing up 34 minuted remaining even though I have formatted my PC numerous times both with NTFS and FAT but no success. Some material on the inernet says that its the cause for a hardware fault but no particulars as to which. My only hope stays in getting it installed at some other location which is healthy and then try running in my system. I hope Intel installation works on my AMD Athlon or else it resounds doom for me. Mayday!!!
