I wipe HDs and install XP on computers for a charity that gives them out at low cost to people with limited incomes. We always reinstall XP on every computer along with other programs such as virus control programs. I have a problem with one of the computers. When we received it, XP was installed on the computer and appeared to be in good working condition. When I tried to install XP with the computer starting from the CD, I received the error INF txtsetup.sif corrupt or missing, status 14. I have searched with Google and through Microsoft knowledge base for information but have not been successful. There was one article in the Knowledge Base that addressed this error when uninstalling XP, which is not my situation.
What I tried: installed another CD drive that had been verified to be in working condition, tried another XP CD that had just been used successfully on another program, and cleared CMOS (a suggestion that didn't work)
Thanks for any help you can give me.
