    Hi there, my first post here so hello everyone!

    Wonder if anyone can shed some light on this situation for me, I'm building a retro gaming rig on a
    Dell Dimension 8300
    P4 Processor
    2GB ram.
    ATI Radion HD 4650 AGP

    my problem is the installation seems to just stop at 25mins remaining, if I press shift + F11 the progress bar still comes up and if I press shift + F10 the command prompt still comes up so the system is still responding.

    seems to get stuck on "Terminal Services - Configuring core Terminal services"

    any ideas what could be going wrong and how to fix this?

    Thanks :)

    did you completely wipe the drive with dban first?
