If Windows® XP setup stops responding with 34 minutes remaining in its installation, then follow the easy 4-step resolution and easily resolve this issue on your computer.
Each step is accompanied by an indicative screenshot for ease of mirroring the action.
Examine the Setup Log Files
Press ”SHIFT”+”F10” to open a command prompt after the first restart, and after any subsequent restarts, if ”Setup” stops responding. In the ”%windir%” folder (typically, ”C:Windows or C:Winnt”), look for the ”Pnplog.txt” file.
You can also review the ”Setupapi.log” file, the ”Setupact.log” file, and the ”Setuperr.log” file in the ”%windir%” folder to try to determine which device ”Setup” was trying to detect when it stopped responding.
To locate the device that is the most likely the cause of the issue, read the last 10 to 15 lines at the end of the files. If the setup log files indicate that a hardware device or a driver may be causing the problem, verify that your hardware is supported by your operating system.
Move or Reset Cards
Try to move or reset cards in the Peripheral Connect Interface (PCI) slots.
