I then thought, maybe my Windows 7 cd is corrupted so I downloaded XP (legally, MSDNAA). Anyways, after attempting to install Windows XP Pro, I got the following error. I can't tell you what the exact words were, since I tried installing it in french, but it basically the error is a blue screen that says an error occured when the installation program tried to update information on the partition and it then says that that the installation program can't continue and to press F3 to quit. It then just restarts the computer and goes back to the installation screen. It ended up saying "cpqarray.sys file is corrupted", though I'm not sure if it said that because I took off the installation cd.
Anyways, I have no clue what the problem could be. I'm not that experienced with these stuff and that's why I come to you for help. Ideally, I would like to keep the files that were already on the computer. If I can't it's alright but I really need a fix to this. Any idea what the problem could be?
Edit: I'm unsure if I posted this on the correct section,
