many times when attempting to install from a DVD drive rather than a CD drive.
You might also copy the CD to a directory on the hard drive and attempt the install directly from the hard drive.
I've been trying to do a XP Home Edition repair install for a very long time now. I've restarted it a lot of times but in the "Installing Windows" section when it says setup will approximately complete in 25 mintues it starts "copying files", I get this "copy error"
"Setup cannot copy the file licwmi.dl_.
Ensure that the disk labeled 'Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 1 CD' is in the drive section below, or provide the location where the file can be found."
Why is this coming and how do I get rid of it? I've tried copying the files from the cd onto an external hard drive and browsing to that location to copy the file but that doesn't seem to work either. I also made a copy of my XP HE cd and that didn't work either. Any ideas?
I've disconnected all but one of my hard drives, all but one of my optical drives, disconnected my sound card and also am using only one RAM module.
