Aha, fighting shoe operating systems always trouble will cause mmm yes :thumbsup:

OK i guess that you have a 160gb hdd partitioned off, and winxp on c: works fine but d: is an issue
do you have any of the error messages for the failed program install attempts.

How did you install xp on d:
How much freespace does d: have after the xp install.
Are you using xpsp3 cd's or earlier versions and installing the servicepack

"then after the entire copying process the system will restart then while boot it suddenly gets off.."
If you had troubles installing xp have you done a disk check.

Well...an operating system without programs installed is worthless, IMO.

I would just delete everything and start over with a proper install of XP.

But...before I did that, I would run a hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic on the hard drive.

<<i installed XP using a boot CD..>>

What boot CD would that be?

Did you use a Microsoft XP install CD?

getting the "c:\windows\system32\config missing or currupt many times " isnt a good sign, as hamluis says i would definitely check the disk for errors, a memory check certainly wouldn't hurt either.
