Im trying to install Windows XP Pro on a fresh HD in a computer that I have built. During the file copy (The Blue Screen) setup couldn't copy MSGINA.DLL and another one that I cant remember. I kept retrying but ended up skipping them.
After that part of the installation when windows reboots, my computer hangs on the windows xp splash screen. So, I tried to re-install, hoping for a better outcome. Only half the time, I can boot up with the CD and when I do, it hangs on the blue setup screen with "Examining HD ... blah blah atapi..." and sits there.
I am 99.9% sure that it is NOT the CD due to it being a new copy of about a week old. I have used this copy once before on another computer with no problems. What am I missing? is something wrong?

does the computer meet the min requirements for xp?

try cleaning the cd and also the cd-drive, a microscopic bit of dirt can cause a lot of trouble.

have you got the original disk, try that instead of copy, or make another copy, this time at a slower speed with all other programmes on computer closed.

good luck
