Hey,
Having a problem installing windows xp. I just bought a new pc and i
am trying to install windows but after the disk formats and is setting
up windows a msg comes up saying that cannot copy file.xxx. I change
the hd and rom drive and tried a few different cds and same thing
happens. Is it ram?, if not what else can it be and how to fix?

Is it a retail version of Windows XP, or an OEM version which cannot be installed to any
system other than the one it was delivered with?

To rule out if it is the CD copy the full directory to the hard drive and
install from there.
