I was trying to reinstall XP home on a computer that is having some OS troubles. Well, it gets to the point of installing network and then hangs. It doesn't deliver an error it just sits. I finally turn it off, then set up restarts, and the circle continues.
The error log gives the error: Setup encountered an error while trying to set system security.
It also gives this error: Setup encountered the following unhandled exception:
Exception c0000005 at address 77c43DDA with the following parameters: 000000 000000
The only way I got these errors was when I was trying to stop the reinstall by taking out the XP disk.
If there is no obvious answer to the errors, then the next question I have is can I just abort the reinstall altogether?
