I'm trying to re-install my windows operating system, but it keeps hanging up at a certain point. eMachines gave me 5 discs for a system restore, and everything is fine up to the last disc. It's at this point the prompt shows "creating user partition", then "copying windows XP data and restore files". It then starts going through all the normal file names, and always freezes at something called Windows\inf\mdmrock4.inf, and the error it throws is Problen in extracting process: Windows\inf\mdmrock4.inf couldn't be opened! (and yes, it actually says "Problen", not "Problem"....) From here, it gives me the option to click "Ok" and get past it, but then every other file beyond that is the same way. Gives the same error, and the same "Ok" prompt.
The weird thing is that i've used these discs before, and they've worked perfectly, so i have no idea why it's not working now. Is it a hardware issue, a harddrive issue, or what? I've checked the discs and they all seem to be undamaged. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
EDIT: I'm on an eMachines t6211 (i think that's the model, can't check right now) and running XP home. The computer is about 2 years old.
