Hi. Sorry......I somehow managed to post the original question in the Windows NT section, so I apologize for the double booking. I have an older AMD based computer, and I have my XP SP3 disk. I decided to re-platform my computer this evening due to issues it was having. I booted off the Windows disk, and followed the process and started loading Windows in a newly created blank partition (after deleting the old partition). Everything seemed to be going normally,and the process went through "Collecting Information", "Dynamic Update, and "preparing installation". As it started into the "Installing Windows" section, an error message appeared called "The Parameter is Incorrect" came up. I clicked on the "Click OK to view setup log file", and the error file shows:
"Installation failed E:\l386\ams. Error message: The parameter is incorrect"
"Fatal error. One of the components that Windows needs to continue setup could not be installed"
I click "Close", and the computer reboots, runs through the reboot and displays "set-up is being restarted", and I end up back at the "The Parameter is Incorrect" error message.
Any thoughts anyone?
I'm not sure what to do next at this point.
Thank you for looking.
