XP Install HELP

#1
I went out and bought the full XP Pro install. after i did the long reformat (NTFS) the disc starts to install packages. when it gets to ipsecsnp.dll the file cna not be copied. i have reformatted and installed 3 times. when i skip these files the system does not run smoothly, any ideas?

well if you bought XP you get some free support from microsoft. you might want to give them a call. They cn tell you exactly what that error is.

it probably loads up to installing that file and stops dead ....i doubt its your hardware doing it

it jsut says "the file *** was not copied correctly. The file setup on your hard drive is not a valid windows xp system image. if you are installing from a CD, there may be a problem with the windows XP CD."


and i stops on the same file most of the time.

ok figured it out, it was sometime with my hardware. I set my ram to auto speeds, instal of the 2.0 DDR timings and as low as they can go. after the operating system is installed i will crank it back up.
