Install problem in Win2K professional

Hello:

I am trying to install Windows 2000 professional in a PC
and during the installation process I got the following error.

"The file ntsd.exe was not correctly copied to the directory
and CD you are using may be corrupted".
(This Cd is a brand new CD)

It gives me a choice to bypass this file but it warned the windows
installation may not work properly. I bypass the file and after installing Windows I got following issues:

1. My "Administrative tool menu" is completely empty even    
    though I installed such tools as web server.
2. When I try to install Windows2000 service pack4, it complaints
    the program is not a valid win32 application.

Could someone please help what do hereā€¦thanks a lot

I would reinstall.

Try reinstalling with a different CD. If it comes up again try a different CDROM drive. If again try a different hard drive.

I actually had this issue recently due to blown capacitors creating a flakey motherboard.
