I have a 400 MHZ intel celeron processor with 128 MB RAM. It has
windows Me instlaled in one of the hard drives. I tried to install
Windows XP in another hard drive as a new installation.

The installation hands when isntlaling devices. I checked the log file
to find this...

In SETUPLOG.TXT

09/17/2003 17:59:43,d:\xpclient\base\ntsetup\syssetup\syspnp.c,2901,,SETUP:

In SETUPAPI>LOG

#I023 Actual install section: [NO_DRV_X]. Rank: 0x00000001. Effective

From this I am thinking it is some hardware conflict with the system
speakers. I do not know how to resolve this problem.

Please help.

Thank You!

I have exactly the same problem, with XP Home OR XP Pro,
the installation hangs at the device installation stage
(34 mins left).

If you do find out the problem please let me know how to
resolve.

Cheers
Mark

I know this is very late, but I ran into a similar issue recently and thought I should share my fix in case anyone else even decide to install XP and experience the issue.

First, I think there are a couple of important lines that are missing from the "setupapi.log" file, below. The log should continue to say that the installation is trying to do an full install of the acpi.......from the PNP0800 file found in machine.inf. What I did was to bypass this phase so the installation can continue. To do this, from the command prompt, browse to the windows directory to find the inf location.

C:/windows/inf/machine.inf, I am guessing everyone knows how to browse using the "cd" command. Upon browsing to the "machine.inf", the file should open in a notepad, in the notepad, locate the "PNP0800" line (system speaker) and "rem" it out, you do this by simply typing "rem" (without the quotations), and a space infornt of that line, now save the change (ctrl + s) and close. Now re-insert the Windows CD and let it continue. Your screen will flicker a few times durring the installation, it's OK.

P.S, I didn't mention that before all of this, you may need to remove the Windows CD. I figure if you got as far as getting to the setup file, you would have done this already.

Let me know how it works out.
