I am doing a fresh install of Windows XP on a year old Compaq computer.
Upon booting from the Windows XP CD, it starts to load all the files. About a minute later, I get the following Error Message...
The file ntfs.sys is corrupted.
Press any key to continue.
I press any key and it tells me....Setup failed. Press any key to restart your computer.
I have tried loading Windows with a XP SP2 CD, XP SP1 CD and a regular XP CD and still get the same error message.
I have tried different Hard Drives...still get the error message.
I though it might be the IDE controller, so I installed an IDE controller card.....still get the error message
