I've had this problem on an older model, too. When I try to install Windows 2000 or XP pro, it goes all the way through the loading of files until it says "windows (xp/2000) is now starting", after which it just freezes. I left it for about two hours, it's definitely locked up. I've installed 98 and ME at seperate times, never had any problems. Does anyone know why this is happening? I've heard rumor about improper bios settings concerning mass storage controllers, but I copied the files to the hard drive to install from there and I get the same problem. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
