Usually a sign of broken hardware.
The good news is that corporate OS. That means you have work supplied support. Let them fix it.
Just wondering. . .
You didn't mention whether you did a full format and verify partition information. If the machine had problems to begin with there may be a lingering problem.
Having the same problem
This started for me after I flashed my bios and XP started having strange errors, so I decieded to reinstall and I also keep having the problem when coping files. What does this mean, should I go out and buy another copy of XP? I don't see any scratches that are major on the CD. Also does anyone know how to restore your old bios from a floppy. I feel if I go back to my old bios will this fix the problem?
Since you have the corporate version (you claim it's the same issue) then let your IT staffers have a go at it. The issue is a sign of bad hardware or CD. But nothing presented gives a clue which it is.
It is not an IT issue
I am using a copy that my friend gave me and I did not start having this problem until I flased my bios to update them. My mother board is really old ECS K7VZA 3.0. Windows XP service pack 2 was causing hangs to my system so I had to upgrade bois. After that I could not longer install windows I would get this message syntax error: 386\asms\7000\MSFT\WINDOWS\MSWINCRT\MSWINCRT.MAN on line 4
XP Corporate copies get IT support.
As you've declared you don't own this CD or copy, it's unlikely it's a valid or good CD.
Windows XP installation problem
I have the same problem when install windows XP in the HP 510n computer.
This Windows XP CD work fine in other computer.
I changed a new hard drive but the problem still exist.
I think the problem is the bios or the motherboard.
I have the same problem!!
I assembled the computer myself with brand new parts:
Gigabyte Intel 955X board
Pentium D830 3.0 Mhz
2 x 80Gb SATA drive on RAID0
ELSA FireGL V3200 PCI Express graphic card
2 GB GeIL Ram
Pioneer DVR-109 - 16X DVD
You don't have the same problem.
The original poster has an IT issued CORPORATE copy. They need to check with the IT group about what to do.
Your issue is not the same and you did yourself a disservice by claiming it's the same issue.
-> Let me be very blunt. 100% of the corporate copies I encounter are pirated. These forums are not pirate friendly.
FIXED!!! It was the Rams!
I have 4 x 512 md DDRII rams,
I took them all off the board, and i started trying each one apart.
I plugged the first one, went through all the process again and this time the installation stoped also at random files but at 30 % of installation when it used to do that at 70%.
I removed the ram chip and put another one, went through the whole process again, and voil
You don't mean to say that even though you'd found some of the RAM was faulty you re-installed it do you?
That's just plain asking for trouble, make sure you know which sticks are the bad 'uns and GET NEW RAM - if you must leave it in, pray that it does't fail before you get new RAM.
What do you need 2 Gb for anyway, I use games and photo-editing software as well as PDF convertors, I'm nowhere near the top of my RAM usage and I only have 1.5 GB DDR RAM installed.
The best think is to contact the supplier and let him know, as one of the nice things about RAM is that it usually has a lifetime warranty so they should replace it with out a murmer.
I actually replaced the sticks straight away after finding the faulty ones.
You're right 2 GB is more than enough, I might not reach that high usage, but as a 3D artist I'm forced to use 3 to 4 softwares at the same time, especially when working on high res textures, a high usage of RAM is required.
I just found it weird that it was the Rams. You'd expect anything except that. Well at leats me!
I finally finished building my workstation and it's working great :). Finaly The blue screen nightmare is over.
