Well, I suppose you have ;-)

Does it freeze before you get Windows setup or when starting the not-finished Windows installation on your hdd?
Did you remove all partitions, including Windows 2000?

First of all it hangs on "Setup is starting Windows" part of the installation; that beeing befor i can pick what partition i want windows to be installed on before copiing files; before the first restart
Yap tryed formating on another computer, i even install win xp, up to the first restart, with the hdd connected on another computer NOTHING WORKS :(((((( except win 2000 of course

I think you have to wipe the partition table (or the whole MBR), probably there's something wrong.
