I am running a Gigabyte 7VAX KT 400 mobo with XP 2100+ CPU and an Xtasy GEforce 4 Ti4200 video card. I have two hard drives, 1 primary master 80 gig WD 8mb buffer hd and 1 secondary master 60 gig Maxtor. I have 1 40x Lite on burner. That is all my comp has. Right now, I have windows 2000 installed (because of prior problems) and I want to dual boot with XP and 2000. I have my 80 gig partitioned into 3 gigs and 77 gigs with 2000 on the 3 gigs. I partitioned my 60 gig also into 3 gigs and 57 gigs hoping to install XP on the 3 gigs. When I tried to install XP onto it, it keeps finding missing files. I've tried 3 times, twice through dos and once throuhg windows 2000 and it always finds different files missing. Many times, multiple files missing. Needless to say XP won't run properly if I skip these files. Does anyone know the problem?
The only other thing I have seen to cause this is bad memory. Sometimes causes the CDROM to be unable to copy the files. I would lean towards bad disk first though. If it's the same 3 files every time then probably the disk. Otherwise might want to look at memory.
