I know this topic has been asked several times but none of the solutions are working for me.

I am trying to re-install Windows XP Professional with an unattended install disc and after it gets past the Installing Windows blue screen portion (The one that says "Setup will complete in approximitely x minutes" it trys to boot to the desktop but it just restarts back to the blue "Installing Windows XP" screen.

I have used this exact process on several of our PC's here and it has worked fine most of the time.

I have no USB devices connected, all I have are PS/2 Mouse + Keyboard and VGA Monitor.

Any ideas?

Nevermind, I solved it by taking the disc out at the right instant and it proceeded to boot to desktop. I haven't had to do this for any PC except for this one.

Well I have another PC that is giving me the same problem, only this time, taking the disc out does not work. I've checked the boot order and it is booting to Hard drive 1st, CD Rom 2nd...

I also ran a hard drive test from the BIOS and it passed.

Any other ideas on how to resolve this?

Hi
Are you using the same keyboard that you used on the other pc?
faulty keyboards been known to cause reboot issues during install.
To install xp your boot order should be cd rom 1st.hard drive 2nd
