Default Hanging at 0% Setup Files

I'm using a Mac Mini Core Duo, and hanging (like other people in the "CD Booting hangs" thread) at Setup is copying files ... 0% on the blue Windows installer screen, after successfully designating my NTFS partition.

Since this is a different problem than the "Patching succeeded" hang, I thought I'd start a new thread. Any tips? Thanks.

Should be dual-booting by now.

Having same problem. Hangs at 0%. I hear if you keep trying it will work. But no success yet. Doing slow format at the moment

After Blanka and myself patched up the xom.efi for 20" iMacs last night, we're stuck at the same spot. The bad sign is the caps lock light won't go on if you press Caps lock.

So, question, are you able to see the light on the caps lock key (at this stage) when pressed?

Nope, no caps lock light here either. And I tried a slow format, that didn't help. Looks like we're all in the doghouse.

I had the same problem, but I resolved it. Here's how I did it.

I was using Windows XP Pro SP2 originally to install XP on my Mac mini. No matter how many times I tried, the thing wouldn't install (would hang right before it would start copying files).

Therefore, I switched over to an XP Home SP2 installation, and that successfully installed. Therefore I'd suggest either making another XP Pro CD from a different source, or try a different version of XP, like Home.
