XP install from Restore CD - Mini-Wizard hangs at step three


G

Guest

Having an issue with a co-workers box. We are starting from a fresh
re-install from restore CD's
During start-up, the Mini-Setup Wizard hangs when I try to skip or use the
next button from the "What's your computer's name?" page.
I have tried:
re-installing - 3 times so far.
using only letters in the name
using only numbers in the name
using no name
using alpha-numeric
Skipping the step altogether
Starting in Safe Mode
Having the machine both on and off of a network.

Safe mode will not allow me to start the OS - returns a Setup did not
complete error.

E-machine T3025 Athalon 3000+ 512Megs ram

Any thoughts on getting past this step in the process?

Here is the resolution to the issue provided by Emachines:

The only way to resolve this issue is to bypass the eMachines Windows XP
OOBE. Do this: 1. Restart the computer and begin tapping the F8 key The
Windows Advanced Options menu appears. 2. Use the arrow keys to highlight
Enable VGA Mode 3. Hit ENTER to select Enable VGA Mode
4. Hit ENTER again to boot Windows XP A message box will appear in the
center of the screen that says, "To improve the appearance of visual
elements, Windows will automatically adjust your screen resolution." 5. Click
on OK Another message box will appear in the center of the screen that says,
“Windows adjusted your screen resolution. If you can read this text click OK
to continue."
6. Click on Cancel A new window appears called, “Windows XP Home Edition
Setup†to guide them through an alternative to the eMachines Windows XP OOBE.
7. Click on Next The next screen will prompt them to read through the license
agreement. 8. Select I Accept
9. Click on Next The next screen will prompt them for regional and language
options. 10. Click on Next The next screen will prompt them to personalize
your software. 11. Type the name of your choice in the field provided. 12.
Click on Next The next screen will prompt them for the Microsoft Windows XP
Product Key.
13. Click on Next The next screen will prompt them for a computer name.
Inform the customer that this computer name identifies their PC on a network.
15. Type the computer name of your choice in the field provided. 16.Click on
Next The next screen will prompt them for modem dialing information.
17. Select your country/region. 18. Type your area code in the field

time settings. 20. Set your date, time, and time zone accordingly 21. Click

that Typical Settings is selected
23. Click on Next Wait for the next screen to finish finalizing their

be best if the system will remove any internet connection and also remove the
modem while doing the restore process.
