I am trying to do a clean install on a machine that
recently died. (Would not get past login: Would auto
reboot) I removed all partitions, formated the hard
drive, FDisk /mbr to clear the mbr and started over. I
have been trying to load win2000 pro and get most of the
way through. I then get files that are missing from the
CD Rom. this disk was just used to load on another
computer, so I know that the disk is fine (multiple
licenses) Any ideas as to why this is happening?
(Hardware issues, Conflicts) has anyone seen and gotten
past this?

Thanks
Sean

Greetings --

Problems copying files or corrupted files during installation are
most often caused by defective or sub-standard hardware; in order of
likelihood, either RAM, the hard drive, or the motherboard. On much
less frequent occasions, a bad CD or defective CD drive can also cause
this.

I would suspect a hardware problem, with your CD drive, the controller or
the cable connecting them, or - possibly - a memory problem.

You cannot be sure that the CD itself isn't defective. Setup might need to
read other files from it when you install on another computer, as, among
other things, drivers probably differs.

Best regards
