Hola discupen si consulto en español, pero soy de Argentina y sigo esta página todos los dias y es una masa el foro.

Mi problema es que tengo una PC vieja y necesito reinstarle el Windows XP pero no me deja ya que a la mitad de la instalacion arroja que no puede varios archivos. El CD, lectora y disco estan OK ya que los puse en otra PC y lo instale desde alli y no tuve problemas, luego con el windows ya instalado lo volvi a la PC original, pero tampoco arranca: no mustra la pantalla de carga del windows. Prove con el WIn98, linux Ubuntu pero me sale el mismo problema de que no puede leer algunos archivos del CD.
La compu es vieja y tiene:
Durom 1600 mhz
mother PCCHIPS M825LU 7.2a
256 mb de ram
CD-RW 52x32x52 ATA
disco WD 40gb ATA
geforce mx440
fuente de 300W.

el cable ATA es compartido por la lectora y el disco (esclavo/primario).

Puede ser que sea el controlador IDE de la placa madre?

Si me pueden ayudar les agradezco.

Por favor en avanzado.

Sorry, but I don't speak Spanish (perhaps there is a Spanish language site available?). I could understand some of what you wrote, but I didn't understand the following:
1) What exactly happens when you try to install Windows XP Pro?
2) Did Win98 and Ubuntu work or not work?
Good luck!

Yeah sorry I can't understand a word.

Ok, thanks anyway, writing in a future case in English.
I could fix it and also adding a connection to the disk and one for the CD.
This freed the problem I had the disk controller on the motherboard.

I translated it with google, very good.

...And i took 5 years of Spanish for what? If i were at home, I would have the time needed to remember how to proberly speak the language...

The gist of it seems to be that he needs to re-install XP, but can't. I think its an issue recognizing either the CD or the HD, but would need more time to properly tanslate...
