Hi all,
I copied the content of the WINXP installation CD to C.
while trying to install from C (using winnt.exe) I have an error "cannot
copy file 'disk1' "

The file exists and its not flagged with read only or hidden or system.

Please advise
TIA
Guy

You have to install from the CD.

Guy

There was a 'special' XP boot diskette available free from www.bootdisk.com
... I believe that there is a charge for it these days.. one boots from the
diskette and then point to the location of winnt.exe on the hard drive.. it
is a single diskette as opposed to the 'set of six' available from
Microsoft..
