OK, after all the hassle with my computer it is still not running. So I am on a limb here and need to ask for help.
Basically, my home PC is refusing to install XP, it keeps bombing out and I get various faults, including the warning that the machine cannot read files as the setup is installing
So far I have swapped the hard drive twice, the CD rom twice and I have removed extraneous equipment such as sound and network cards, all with the same result. Switching to a lower speed CD rom drive seems to help with the loading, but I have tried two 56x read CD roms with the same effect
For information, the drive I am installing to is UltraSCSI and I am using an Adaptec card to run it. Have tried to install to an ATA (IDE) drive, but same problems
