When you install Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me), the Setting up Hardware dialog box may lose focus, and its color is changed from blue to gray.


This behavior can occur because the hardware detection process assumes focus during this portion of Setup; this is part of the normal installation process.


The change in appearance does not indicate a problem with the installation process. The change in focus may last up to three minutes or longer, depending on the number of devices being detected.
