Setup Cannot Copy The File

I also tried a different IDE cable, same problem. This can be just a case of finding the right place in the bios, or swapping the drives over in the cable connections.

Several years ago I had this same problem as you are reporting, which was caused by the CD drive being faulty, I had to buy a new one, then Windows XP Problem solved. I am sure that there is nothing wrong with the CD drive, because I also use RIS (Remote Installation Service) which allow me to perform install through the network. http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/installing-windows-xp-cant-copy-certain-files.153348/

Installing Ubuntu will overwrite Windows on your 'C' drive, so it's worth trying as it's free, and only takes 20 minutes to do.

I read you have to load factory setting prior to update, since that could not post for 4 days also tried all tricks no luck. And when I tried to check the local policy settings, and clicked Account Policies, the system said there was an error in secedit.sdb. ntfs.sys...win2k.sys FILES!

After much trial and error (mostly error) I determined I had a bad (1 of 4) memory module. I have 32 bit XP Home on my desktop (P4 3.4Ghz) with 4Gb ram of which it recognises 3.5Gb.

There is a problem though! check my blog Reply Poul Wittig June 7, 2011 at 19:00 Haha sorry for the pessimistic post, was a bit stressed at the time. It's possible that the installation fails because the harddisk is infected? I think this is because the DVD DRIVE is the 'Master' or something).

When I have changed the boot order, I reboot. I have had the same problem on any pc with an LG Electronics drive (cd/rw,cd,dvd rom). and sure enough it was a case of bad memory. http://stevemattley.com/setup-cannot/setup-cannot-copy-the-file-sp2-cab.html The job was heading for the bin but I spotted a references to RAM memory in a forum relating to a similar problem and decided to checkout the RAM cards etc

Thanks Sander. I have tried two XP CDs and two CD drives with the same result, and I got a new hard drive and still had these problems.

I thought I had a RAM issue or a bad block, but just using a different burned XP disk solved the problem.

Please join our friendly community by clicking the button below - it only takes a few seconds and is totally free. Was the 32 bit XP install done with the same DVD drive as the the 64 bit version? You probably need a Service Pack update after the install anyway and all or at least a lot of the real important files will get updated/replaced. So if you receive a copy error when doing an install, check your file path length.
