I tried to reinstall Windows XP from the Dell-supplied CD but I get an error that says:
"The file 1astor.sys was not copied correctly.
The file setup placed on your hard drive is not a valid windows xp system image.
If you are installing form a CD there may be a problem with the Windows XP CD
To retry press enter
If you continue to receive this message contact your windows XP supplier or system administrator.
If I ignore this file, it pops up the name of another. If I keep ignoring these files, the installation fails.
