What is the spec of the PC? What happens when you try to install XP?

I see no reason why XP won't install on this system. What happens when you try? Is there an error? If so what is the error message?

Well, when i'm trying to install the windows, i must reboot the pc from the CD, it works normally but it have to do some comprobations and it say that you can press F6 for something and F2 for somethin, but it's no necessary to modify that, when my pc have finished the comprobations it die, it doesn't move from there, and i wait and wait and wait but nothing happens and that problem occur with all versions of win XP, i mean, Win XP sp2, Falcor edition and leonic, but with win 98, millenium and 2000 NT the problem doesn't occur... do you know why?

Please reply me as soon as possible

Thanks

From the information you are giving me it is very difficult to tell where this is going wrong. It does however sound like you are trying to install an illegal version of Windows on your PC. We do not support illegal/pirated software in this forum - see the forum rules.
