    Open your system in the Safe Mode (pressin F8 continiously at startup) and check for viruses, trojens etc.

    Probably they cause.

      Are you using boot disk  and you cannot install Windows?

      Disconnect all peripherals and see if the computer will start with nothing attatched to it. Then, if the repair is still stuck reconnect the essentials and see if you can boot to the recovery console and run - chkdsk /r - to repair the file system.

      I cannot do anything. My computer is set on installing and I cannot cancel. I cannot go to safe mode.

      I have unplugged everything but every time I boot up it tells me to insert the installation CD to complete the installation then it sticks on 33 minutes.


      How about booting to a KNOPPIX CD and seeing if you can recover your data and then do a Clean install on a freshly partitioned and FULLY formatted hard-drive?

      Have you checked to see if your RAM modules are OK and if they are properly seated, and have you run a drive diagnostic diskette over the drive?

      Badly seated, or faulty RAM is often the reason for an install to hang. Have you noticed any faults before this event took place?
