clean install problems

Posted: 09-13-2003, 11:13 PM
I originally wrote anout having install errors with
windows xp pro SP1 and someone suggested using boot disks.
i tried that and got past the problems but now when it is
trying to copy windows files to the hard drive it keeps
telling me that it can't copy a bunch of files. It says
press enter to try again or ESC to skip. if you skip all
the files it finishes install, reboots, and never loads
anything. Anyone have any suggestions. I should also add
that i have done a clean install from the disk before and
it has worked then.

The "Doctor" has a very good point.

Also make sure that "Virus Detection" is turned off in
the bios (if there).
