OK this was all a red herring :o( The fault turned out to be that in BIOS I had USB support for legacy KBD/MOUSE/FDD enabled. Then the installer hung while I had an ATMEL USB development board plugged in, and also a MGE USB UPS. So it looks like the install loader hangs on USB devices that are not generic (USB HP ScanJet 5200C, Aopen optical USB mouse and M$ USB keyboard are ok) Installing the 5.2 Boot Loader trashed Win XP, but a rebuild fixed win XP with no loss of data (but I had the data backed up anyway) and I installed GAG boot loader so I could dual boot. Everything seems to be running sweet now :o) Regards, Kat. --- Outgoing mail is certified Virus Free. Checked by AVG anti-virus system (http://www.grisoft.com).
