    Problem reinstalling Windows XP

    I have been running this computer for over a year without a problem. Then I decided to activate the Fax Services Component for Windows. During the activation process I received a message to insert the Windows disk. I did this and shortly I received the following message:

    "Setup cannot copy the file fxservent.dl_"

    I click cancel and ended the program. I then tried to run the install program again. The same thing happened. Except this time the message said:

    "Setup cannot copy the file fxsperf.in_"

    I again clicked Cancel. I decided I would reinstall Windows and try to repair the program. I put the Windows CD in and booted from the CD. During the reinstall/repair I received this message:

    "Setup cannot copy the html32.cn_ file"

    I canceled the reinstallation/repair and now need help.

    I am running Windows XP Professional SP2 with all of the updates current. What can I do to fix this problem?

    Try cleaning your WinXP CD first and check to see if it's scratched up.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    could try copying the I386 directory onto your hard drive using a boot floppy/usb key then run winnt from that directory, setup should run entirely from the hard drive that way
