I currently have Debian on an old computer that I have, but I would like to switch back to Windows XP (the original OS). I'm not very familiar with Linux systems. However, I put in the disk and the OS install seemed to work fine until it said that the amsint.sys file is corrupted which then ended the install. I don't think I have any working OS on the computer at the moment, so it's kind of hard to do work on it.

I tried googling this problem, but all the solutions were for already installed XP systems. Any help would be appreciated!

Since you have the installation disc I would suggest wiping the hdd with a program like Darik's Boot and Nuke to overwrite the hdd which will effectively give you a blank hdd to start with and then install the operating system.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
