i am trying to install windows XP and on installation it gives me a fatal error.

The exact error is

" Data error (cyclic redundancy check) . "

Does anyone know how to solve this problem or get me pointed in the right direction to finding a answer?

Did you reformat and partition the hdd first?

When during the installation process does it do this? Are there any scratches on the CD that you're using?

Is this a genuine Microsoft CD or a CD from a computer manufacturer? If it's from an manufacturer, is it for the same make and model computer as it was made for? If not, what make and model is your system, and what make and model is the CD for?

Also, a CD may appear good from a casual glance, but one little scratch can prevent files from copying (although there's an impressive checking system built into the file system - that's why, occasionally, a badly scratched CD works OK). Any chance of borrowing another CD to try this with?

FWIW - I've got a Toshiba at work that this is happening to. We've tried the same steps as you have, and have even tried another CD. Today (if it's still there) I'm going to run our diagnostics suite on it to see if we can figger it out.

It is a disk from HP made for it, first I'll try an extensive clean with a disk cleaner, it is in good condition but as you said, ascratch can be in the perfect place for data corruption or loss.If that doenst work I could probably ask a buddy for a disk from Microsoft and pull the Product Key off the HP disk i have now.

We gave up on the Toshiba today (at work) and are sending it out to the service center for repair. Got another one back today that the service center said they just cleaned the CD and it worked for them (but didn't for us). So we tried to restore it and it failed also. I'm at a loss to explain it.

I'd suggest that the disk problem is a likely reason for this, and fixing a disk with one of the repair tools that are available is a lot less expensive than most other solutions.
