I'm installing Windows XP SP2 on an older machine. This is SOLTEK MOBO (SL-67EB) but I've added some extra memory and (total 256MB) and a large hard drive. The hard drive was formatted with NTFS. I've also updated the BIOS.

When I install, everything goes ok and then suddenly, at around 29%, I get the message "Setup cannot copy file nikedrv.sys". A bit later, another one comes up
"Setup cannot copy file rio8drv.sys".  An then:

"Setup cannot copy file spnike.dll".
"Setup cannot copy file sprio600.dll".
"Setup cannot copy file sprio800.sys".
"Setup cannot copy file srgb.icm".
"Setup cannot copy file streamci.dll

The list goes on. At about 40% about every other file is rejected. I don't understand why, unless it's some kind of memory problem.

I tried pressing on and eventually I got a blue screen of death with the message IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

The Service Pack appears to be the common denominator!

I'm just installing on to a clean, formatted hard drive, from CD-ROM. I can't be a software issue.

can you download another instance of SP2 and attempt to install it again?

It has nothing to do with SP2. PC was booted with Windows XP CD, and is being installed on a new, clean formatted hard disk. There's nothing worng with this CD, or the CD rom drive.

but the error you reported indicates a hardware incompatibility issue or the ram itself may be a problem

It was the CPU, or rather, the CPU fan that wasn't doing its job properly - bearings worn. Thus, the CPU, would overheat when copying large files, causing the error.
