Setup Cannot Copy Files Xp Install

Why not read it up ? I checked the length of my file path and it exceeded 128 characters. I had this problem about five years ago. Could the OS be unrepairable? check over here

I had tried using the UBCD, tried other versions of Windows OS, all with no success. Trying to install with Windows XP Pro on my newly built system. I changed the path so that the length was exactly 127 characters.

but right now the install process with windows xp32 works fine but I got recently 8gb additional ram memory installed so I will try later to change the installation to xp64 I was able to verify that the files were indeed on the CD and could be read by other computers, so the "not found" message didn't make any sense. I've used that OEM disk before without any problems. You should try replacing your system RAM and run the Windows XP installation program again.

I usually take the suspect drive, put it in another machine, and reformat it there. (This of course after making sure the machine can't boot from the suspect HDD.

Unfortunately, the setup disk did not give an 'upgrade' choice - it attempted a fresh OS install, destroying all my updated drivers, and system checkpoints in the process. I tried cleaning the CD (even though it is brand new), tried the DVD-ROM instead of the CD-RW, tried another WinXP CD, all to no avail. It's strange that it only occurs with XP and with more than 1 version of it.I have tried using KillDisk to wipe the drive and when I load it with CD this content dont have floppy, remove cd?

I copied the missing files from my computer into the hard-drive of the computer i'm working on.

I skipped the files (ks.sys, modem.sys, ndisuio.sys, and many other files)and continued the installation.

doing a fresh install, could that be the problem?
