Well that clears things up a bit. For sure it's not a Clonedvd amd AnyDVD issue.
Did you check your Bios on the bad machine and have all the drives set to automatic and they were properly identified?
Did you check in Device Manager and confirm all the drives were set to use DMA?
Look in event viewer and see if it provides any details of the malfunction.
Edited: One more thing, you didn't do something crazy with the page file did you?
I also suggest you take whatever memory sticks you have in the good machine outand put them them in the malfunctioning one. If it works then there is a problem with your memory stick(s).
When I first assembled my PC I had 3 brand new sticks, two 256's and one 512. bios showed it recognized the 1024 MB of memory. I could not load XP, it went through the process and then said a file was defective. I returned the disk and the new one behaved the same. It got to the point where I kept trying and this time it would load the defective file and continue then found a new one that was defective. Spent a week trying to load it. Out of desperation I pulled the two 256 sticks out and tried again. The install was a success. Once loaded I put one of the two 256 sticks in and it crashed. Removed that one and put the other in, all was fine and recognized the 768 mb ram. Put the third one in again and crashed. Took it out, returned it to the store and got a new one, put it in and everything was fine.
Another time, after about two years use, I was having some problems with programs, I then opened the case, pulled out all the sticks, then reseated them. Problem solved and I've never had an issue since.
