CAN NOT LOADWINDOWS XP ON AMD MACHINE
Posted on 2004-10-25
Have a wierd problem.
I get an error message when loading windows xp. After formatting get an error message cannot copy file diskcopy.dll , enter to retry or esc to skip file. Possible error on CD rom.
All hardware is new.
AMD 2500 ATHLONE , GIGABYTE BOARD 7VM400 BOARD , LG CDRW , 40 GB SAMSUNG HDD , 256 MB RAM.
ERROR OCCURS EXCATLY AT 16% OF copying files to drive.
I HAVE TRIED THE FOLLOWING , SO PLEASE DO NOT SUGGEST
a) Tried another windows xp cd
b) Replaced CD Writer with another. Also tried from std cd rom.
c) replaced harddrive
d) even replaced motherboard but too no avail
e)I have tried deleting partition , recreating it , formating (i have tried bothe the quick and long format)
f) Only thing I have not replaced is memory and CPU......I do not see how this could cause this problem
Error message occurs at the same point every time. If I push esc to skip file it goes a little further then has a problem with
I set up another machine with identical components last week with no problem at all.
