I am having such a problem installing windows on my new machine.
I built the computer myself and everything is hooked up right. My cmos says that all my drives are functioning and it's recognizing them.
I go to load Windows and the drive wasn't partitioned. I continue to install windows and come across a screen that says:
Problem with setupdd.sys. Setup has encountered an error and the computer needs to be restarted. PLease make sure all hardware and software are installed properly. If problems continue, disable BIOS memory options chaching or shadowing.
Then I restarted and it said NTLDR is missing.
I restarted again and started loading windows again and then I got another screen that said:
Setup cannot access the required Windows XP configuration information. Contact your system administrator!
