Hi all, i started a clean install of xp sp3 from a genuine disc, but after formatting the partition and copying files and restarting, the screen gets stuck and all i get is the cursor blinking furiously. I tried this again and again, still it wouldnt work, i then tried to install some not-so-genuine copies, but no matter what i use, its the same problem. I tried installing linux and it went fine. I am at loss as to whats the problem. Any help?

I figured it out. I had backed up all of my data on a partition as i didn;t have an extra backup harddisk. After i formatted all the other partitions, that backup partition became the 1st primary partition and windows wouldnt install anywhere else. I transferred my data to another partition and it worked alright. Thanks guys
