    upgrade mix up

    Hi, have 98 and was intending to upgrade to XP, for some reason or other the XP installation wouldn't run. When I boot up 98 now, it goes through the various familiar processes but then comes to 'updating system settings' with old drum role picture. This seems to be continuing indefinately with nothing happening. Any suggestions please?

    Thanks

    If you press CTRL+ALT+DEL when this happens, do you see a program named runonce in the task list? End it if you do, and it should allow Windows to continue loading.

    What were the problems you encountered installing Windows XP?
