I am trying to install Windows XP on a computer that had Linux on it but Linux didn't support the video card. I used gpated and wiped the hard drive all the way down to unallocated. immediately after inserting a Windows XP disc, I get the message

inf file txtsetup.sif is corrupt or missing status 14 setup cannot continue. Press any key to exit
.

 

Google only returns results on this error with machines with Windows XP already installed or after just installing Windows XP and after the first restart. also there is way more "status 18" results than there are "status 14 results". and many of the status 14 results do not include "setup cannot continue". However, there is no result anywhere of this error showing up immediately after popping in the disc and before anything is even installed. it is just a completely blank HDD with nothing on it.

 

How do I get it to install?

I downloaded an ISO of Windows XP and wrote it to a bootable flash drive and set the BIOS to boot from the flash drive but it is still giving me the same message

AFAIK...there is no legal bootable .iso file of Windows XP available for download by MS customers.

It's legal as long as your serial is legal. How else is one supposed to fix a scratched CD?
