Hello all,

My system recently crashed, and I have needed to do a compete reinstall of Windows XP. I've done this before, but this time there seems to be a recurrent problem.

I'm not rebooting from a recovery disc, but from the XP disc itself.

I've reformatted the hard drive, after making a new partition, and everything goes OK for a bit. It creates a list of files to be copied, but when it reaches the 19% mark, it says it can't install kodak_dc.icm. I have to press "esc" to skip the file, but as it goes on, several others wont work either. rio8drisys is one of them.

I've tried exchanging the XP disc for another, but it makes no difference. I wonder how to get round this problem?

Not sure if this is your issue, but when this happened to me it was because of bad ram.

If your machine has two pieces of RAM in it remove one and try again. If the problem persists, switch pieces and try again.

If you only have one piece of RAM, you will need another piece to replace it.

What caused the system to crash?

If it was something like an electric surge that could also possibly affect what is happening now.
