I finally managed to install Windows XP 32bit on my old laptop with the same CD as used on every other PC in the house without errors. 

During the Windows installation step this came up 
Windows cannot access the specified device path or file. You may not have the approperiate permissions to access the item

C:\Windows\System32\grpconv.exe 


When booted up the PC first time the login was different....  and the pc used 98 theme as default. Upon any attempt to change anything this came up

C:\DPsFnshr.exe
Windows cannot access the specified device path or file. You may not have the approperiate permissions to access the item


What the hell is going on................
