Anyways I got a new problem and I'm hoping one of you wise people
here can help me solve it once more.
Well I found my recovery disks for windows XP,
the computer I'm doing the install on is Compaq (the model is SR1520NX).
I'm install Windows XP sp2
Most things run smoothly (when i run the recovery disks it moves to
Compaq PC recovery which I assume is normal).
However the problem is when copying the files during the installation
several files often pop up such as COPY.MSI saying it cannot copy
and I have to options to (abort, Retry or ignore), which I believe causes problems in the installation.
IF I chose to ignore/skip it, after reaching 100% (sorry if i'm not being clear here)
It repeatedly copies all the files again.. I've seen that happen four times with no end result.
I'm looking for guidance and ... basically just what to do.
That computer is the main computer that I use for... mainly everything
so I'm looking to get it fixed asap.
Thanks for your attention.
I don't believe the CDs are at fault here since I have done this once before (a long time ago though.)
There are two recovery disks if that helps (but that's probably normal as well )
As well, there have been several problems with this computer previously,
not only being infected with malware (which is hopefully removed) so if you decide
that information is of any use please ask and i would love to tell you all about it.
