Cannot Install XP Pro on new computer
Posted on 2003-12-12
I am unable to get past the message "The following value in the .SIF file used by setup is corrupted, or missing. Value 0 on the line in section [SourceDiskFiles] with key SP1.cab." during the initial installation of XP Pro on a new empty hard drive. I've flashed the BIOS with new update from mfg. This is a bought geniune Windows XP Pro CD. What could be wrong and how do I go about rectifying this? I've tried getting assistance from Microsoft website but in order to again help I need to identify the product code, which only shows up onscreen after an installation. Not the 'key' code, the 'product' code. Any help appeciated.
Computer motherboard is an ASUS S4P800 P4 @ 2.6Gb c/w 512 M Ram, DVDRW, CDRW, floppy, Radeon9200 AGAP 8x video with 128 Mb & DVI and TVout, Maxtor 40 Gb hdd. These are all brand new as well.
