My boss's computer crashed, and we did attempt to restore the computer, but to no avail. We used the original Recovery CD, with the same above error "Setup cannot copy" *.dll, and then we decided to try it on three DIFFERENT XP install CD's (XP Upgrade, XP Original), and even threw in an attempt on Vista Ultimate - but all of them failed. We put in a brand new HD and tried again. Same results. Swapped CDROM's. Same result. Took out memory one by one. Same results.

I'm just about at the end of my rope. Any ideas?

I see you've tried memory and CD drives which would have been my first guesses also.  Next would be to try different IDE/SATA cables. Unfortunately, problems like this can also be CPU, motherboard, or power supply., so finding out which can be a pain.

My option, unfortunately, was to keep swapping CD's until the install was complete. The only missing is some random .ttf file, so we're not that concerned about it. Thanks for the help anyway.
