    XP install wont boot

    Hi hoping someone else has had this problem.

    Had one of the machines go down first thing today, got the usual bluescreen telling you to reset. Booted up in safe mode and it hangs at mup.sys. Figured i'd just run the repair console but when i try to boot from the XP install disk it hangs at "inspecting your computers hardware" and then reboots?? Any ideas on what to do?

    I could do but the image is old (my fault) which would mean quite a bit of work for me after. I can put it into another machine as a slave but i'm not sure what to do after that.
