Hi there,

I'd reformat my hard disk which at first I thought it will solve the problem. :flowers:
But when I try to reinstall windows, there is still error about the pci.sys and also ohci1394.sys is corrupted which i don't really understand how this could happen, since the hard disk is empty.. it should not contain any files. :thumbsup:

So any idea how to solve this problem?

If you are getting error codes then you have not formatted the hdd, or at least not the partition that has the operating system on it. You may have formatted the recovery partition, if the is one.

What is the make and model of your computer?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Just a thought?

Did you use the Windows Disk to reformat?

Sometime that can be a Problem if you have a recovery Partition?

Vica Versa if it is from the Recovery Partition.

Just my 2 cents worth.

With AEFdisk.exe on a boot CD you could format as NTFS for sure, or just delete (all) the partitions. That's what I used. AEFdisk.exe runs in DOS, but can create many types of partitions. Just be sure to fully read the documentation/instructions first.

http://www.aefdisk.com/

I just noticed AEFdisk32 for windows on that site. Maybe that would work too. I haven't tried that version yet though.

hmm... I'm pretty sure that I've formatted the partition that has the operating system on it, because I reformat my c drive, the other partition are songs and movie, I din't install anything at that partition.

Erm...

ASUS M3A32-MVP Deluxe Motherboard
AMD Phenom processor 9500
CREATIVE sound blaster
SAPPHIRE HD 3870 graphic card
500 GB sata drives
Windows XP professional

Erm.. I bring my hard disk to a near by pc shop and reformat my c drive, which I thought I could install my windows back but there's still problem with the pci.sys and the ohci1394.sys. I think I should say I could'nt reinstall my windows instead of unable to reformat.. :flowers:

That would soon sort it out.

People here can Help if you have legal OS on your Computer, Mate!

Not meaning to imply that you don't have a legal system, quite the opposite.

Sometimes we all get confused about it?

So what should I do?

Once booted the XP Disk will give you the Options to Format the Drives..

It will do what you want, just follow the Prompts...

Then Install Windows XP Professional as you indecated thst you have.

OK,

Use the XP Disk to format and install? Not something else from your PC Shop? If they Format it let them also install Windows?

Seems like the PC Store has, maybe, added a Surprise for you?

Just set your BIOS to Boot from CD?

Follow the prompts and Format it again.

Then Install Windows.

Er, I'm trying to use the xp disk to install,and i did'nt bring my hard disk to the pc shop that i bought my pc because it is too far and I thought that i could install windows myself since I'd already formatted my hard disk but it turn out there's still error and the pc shop did not do anything to my pc because i was watching them, and my BIOS is booting from cd. I think it should be faulty hardware which I dont really know how to fix it that's why I'm asking for help here...
