I did a format on my 60gig harddrive with ntfs (took like 10 hours very slow)and tried to load winXP. At first when I rebooted it said I had a virus. I proceeded to load XP anyway. The loading just quit part way. So back to format and tried again, same thing said was virus but proceeded to load, quit part way threw. How can there be a virus on system when there's no software loaded yet? Why does XP stop loading. Could there be a virus in the bios and how do I get rid of it?
