Stranger Than Fiction
- 30 Jan 2004
Cracked open a new set of XP disks today. Each in their own black vinyl sleeve, alone, that is the key word here. Alone. So anyway, I start an install, it gets about 75% done and then prompts me to insert disk 2. I've never seen a regular XP install request another disk. The only time I can think of a 2nd disk was early Media Center versions, and who used that? I cancel the prompt for 2nd disk and the XP install finishes. But now app installs fail. I dont have the error code in front of me but it points to a MS page that tells me to do a SFC /SCANNOW. Thing is ... I can't. When I try, it scans most of the system files and then, you guessed it, asks me for disk 2. I really have no idea what to do here. Ideas?
