Presario 2800 / EVO N800

I'm trying to do a clean install of XP Pro but after the initial loading of files from the cd and the program reboots, the install stops dead and will not continue. I've tried a different hard drive and everything else I can think of. This is the first time I've ever seen XP not continue loading the program after rebooting ??? 

 

Does anyone know if you must have the restore disks, or shouldn't I still be able to install XP without them ?

Immediately after I posted, I tried to install XP one last time, and the program loaded !!!?  I've been trying to get this to work for 3 weeks, off and on !   Tried to install at least a dozen times .....  I guess the secret was posting in the Forum .....???   LOL !
