I recently tried to do a clean install of XP on my 60gig maxtor HD but after the install when the pc automatically restarts, the windows xp logo comes on for about 2-3 seconds and disappears and then nothing. It seems to stop loading after the logo disappears and all I get is a black screen. Any ideas? Do I have a bad HD? This HD is a few years old and I was previously having boot-up issues such as it would automatically restart during boot-up. I ran the disk check utility as well. I kept getting this issue so I wanted to do a clean install.

If the drive passes the diagnostics reccommmended by Kodi, use the same utility to wipe (zero) the drive (maxtor may refer to it as a low-level format). Remnants of the old OS may be interfering
