  1. So, let me see if i can get this straight, you have a Gateway that you are trying to convert to Windows XP. When you insert the Install disc from Microsoft, it begins to load, but then says that it can not copy the "iastor.sys" file. BUT you do have a copy of thsi file on the floppy drive and the floppy drive is attached to the computer via a USB cable?
