I am trying to re-install XP home edition. I have formatted the hard drive and am booting from the XP installation CD. The installation, in most cases, starts loading files then I get an error. I have tried several times, but I just keep getting error messages:
The file serial.sys is corrupted.
File \i386\biosinfo.inf could not be loaded. The error is code 2.
File ntkrnlmp.exe could not be loaded. The error code is 18.
These were the last three error messages I got, I probably got 4 about a half dozen before this, all different, which I did not write down.
When I boot using the setup boot disks I don't get the errors but I can't install because this is a laptop so I don't have floppy/cd in at the same time.
