Specs: Windows XP, 633 / 512mb
I'm trying to work on a system for a client of mine that has a Pentium 4 computer. First it gives one healthy beep for the POST. Then it shows two times an error that says there's a problem with it trying to boot from the CD-ROM. Then as it boots up it gives shows the Windows XP screen signifying that it's loading Windows XP then it shows really quickly a blue error screen that I can't read right away. Then it restarts.

When I try changing the CMOS setting to have it boot to HDD-1 instead of HDD-0 it gives the same error.

Then when I tried formatting it with the Windows XP made a bit of noises like it seemed having some trouble reading the CD...and after I tried two times it displayed the following error:
"INF file txtsetup.sif is corrupt or missing, status 32768. Setup cannot continue. Press any key to exit."
What could be wrong with it?...what's a possible solution?

With txtsetup.sif corrupt it seems likely that the hdd has failed.

However, if you can get into Safe Mode (F8 at startup), open Control Panel then click on System>Advanced then click Settings in the Startup & Recovery pane and uncheck "Automatically Restart" in the System Failure pane. Then reboot.

If a bsod condition re-occurs the error message should be displayed.
