I recently upgraded a xp pro machine to vista business after first running the chkupgrade app first. Once id done this I had a few driver issues and then a few days later it now ont even boot. Stops at crcdisk.sys in safe mode. I have tried loading the defaults in the BIOS, disabling USB controllers in the BIOS. I then decided I would rebuild the machine using the XP Dell disk and it got as far as loading all the windows files and then at the end of the text mode stage where it says starting windows setup it just blue screens everytime. I thought this may be because the BIOS cannot find the HDD controllers or drivers although they show up in the current BIOS and this is why windows cannot load its files onto it. I then downloaded the BIOS updates and SATA drive updates from the DELL website and put them on a floppy. I ran setup using F6 but am now getting the message txtsetup.oem missing.
Any ideas what is wrong and how to go about fixing this. I just want to rebuild it really.
