Man, did you check your boot order in BIOS ? Make sure you are able to boot from harddisk after CDROM.

try low-level formating the disk ...

most hdisk manufactors have a tools disk for such operations...

Search @ Google = low level format <insert hddrive name here>

I had the same problem once. Win 2k would go through and format the drive, copy files to it, reboot and

#!* the drive was bad! Even tried powerquest tool to reformat the drive, but same process.

Tried another drive (a small klunker I had lying around) SAME problem.

SO, I started over on original drive, with a diff motherboard. Format, copy files reboot <shut off and put drive on problem MOBO> boot, windows installed just fine.

I chalked it up to something flakey with the AMD chipset.

Was doing a re-install for a friend and was p***ed at my wasted time, so no more chance or attempts to test it further.

BTW XP uses a slightly diff NTFS format than 2k.

Windows installs can go pear shaped from various hardware issues. Since installs are often prompted by some kind of problem or failure, it's generally a good idea to run two simple tests before proceeding: the hard drive manufacturer's test utility and memtest86+ for the ram. Both of these will run from a self booting floppy, and thus require no working OS in the computer. If you lack a floppy, the Ultimate Boot CD contains all the hdd utiilities and memtest.
