Then the oembios.bin problem became a hardware problem here: http://computing.net/hardware/wwwboard/forum/38620.html
Now it was time for upgrade anyhow so I did. But I am now back to the SAME problem! (I'm freaking out btw)
NEW: Athlon64 2800+ (400mhz/512k cache)
NEW: Asus K8N Motherboard
NEW: 1024MB Corsair RAM
NEW: Antec SLK1650 Case/PS
OLD: WesternDigital 80GB 7200rpm ATA133 HDD
OLD: Radeon 9800 Pro
OLD: LG 40/12/48 CDRW
I tried to setup Windows XP (build2600) from 2 diff CDs. Completes initial copying files. I accept EULA, choose partition, it starts a 2nd copying files and stops at "cannot copy userenv.dll", I said skip and that was only file missing. Obviously can't boot.
I tried to setup WinXP with SP2 slipstreamed in. Completes 1st stage copying files. reboot, accept eula, choose partition, it starts to copy and cannot copy oembios.bin, wowfax.dll, wowfaxui.dll, comctl32.dll, spra0816.dll, migism_a.dll
What am I doing wrong??
Defective HDD? Defective CDRW?
blah, I'm going nuts.
