until the installation begins to copy the files from the CD after having rebooted.
I get the following error after roughly 6% of copying the files (it does copy some files at the start):
Setup cannot copy the file: *****.***
To retry, press ENTER.
If you are installing from a CD, make sure the Windows XP CD is in the CD-ROM drive.
To skip this file, press ESC.
CAUTION: If you skip this file, Setup may not complete and Windows XP may not work properly.
To quit Setup, press F3.
I hit ENTER many times with no luck, as well as the "skip this file" option only to be taken to 3 more errors of the same message. Strangely, after skipping this file, it began copying other files again until it got to 3 more files it couldn't copy, these filenames ("*****.***") are:
After trying to install more than a dozen times over 2 days, "*****.***" stood for the same 4 files over and over again. Trying to install from my hard drive didn't do anything either.
My PC specs are as follows:
MSI P43Neo3-f motherboard
Intel Q8200 processor
2 Gig DDR2 800 Corsair XMS2
200GB ATA-133 hard disk drive (7200 RPM)
16x/48x DVD-ROM drive
MSI Geforce 9800GT 1Gig 256mb graphics card
If anyone can provide me with a solution I'd be so appreciative - I am for the first time in my life, truly stuck with a computer problem that time and effort on my behalf couldn't fix.
