JSI Tip 1013. Setup hangs at "Setup is inspecting your computer's hardware configuration".

If setup hangs at the subject screen, use the checked version of NTDETECT.COM to help determine which hardware item is causing the problem:

1. DISKCOPY the first setup disk to a blank formated floppy.

2. Copy \SUPPORT\DEBUG\I386\NTDETECT.CHK to the diskette you created in step 1, and rename it to NTDETECT.COM.

3. Restart setup using the new diskette.

NOTE: - The checked version of NTDETECT.COM displays each device as it is detected. Press any key to proceed to the next screen. The problem device should be on screen when setup hangs. You can then use the Knowledge Base to research setup issues with this device.
