Duplicate your XP SD2 CD onto a CDR and use that next time. If the copy fails the usual culprits are:
1. An aging CD drive.
2. Fingerprints on the CD.
3. Bad ram. (Look at MEMTEST86 to test)
4. A hacked XP CD.
5. A bad ide cable.
The details are a little sparse such as component age or why you are reinstalling.
Hi, i need some help.
When i tried to install the Windows, the messages keep poping up saying that the setup cannot copy the file. I skipped the files (ks.sys, modem.sys, ndisuio.sys, and many other files)and continued the installation. After i finished installing my computer, my DVD Drives didn't show up till now. It has a yellow exclamation mark on Device Manager. I tried all the following fixes but still get the error :
1. Use regedit and delete the upperfilters and lowerfilters registry keys.(but the keys aren't there)
2. Uninstall the DVDs drivers on Device Manager then reinstall it.
3. Take out one DDR memory stick when installing the Windows.
4. Download the DVD Drive driver but it can't find the target drive even after i typed the drive letter on the directory.(Using LG btw)
5. Unplug the IDE cables, start the computer, Scan for Hardware Change then plug the cables back when restarting.
I googled for alot of fixes too but still can't find one that can fix it. Can anyone help me?
