CRC Error mean bad read from CD.

Usually scratched CD, sometime hardware fault. Memory error may be.

If I read your question right, you downloaded the XP setup files from the web and then tried to install XP. During the install you get a data error when XP install checks and verifies the installed data[CRC check]. If so, then the downloaded file iscorrupt which is causing your problem. No hardware malfunction is involved. If you previously tried to install XP and received this error and then tried to reinstall XP again in the same partition without a reformat of the hard drive to clean it of all files, you'll get that error. Again, it's not a hardware issue.

This is either an error in one of the downloaded files,
The CD (or CD drive)
The hard drive or controller.

This error is NOT specific to VIA or AMD hardware.

I prefer to manually install the Windows XP updates rather than allowing XP to download them during the install.
If for no other reason, than all of your hardware may not function properly with the 'default' drivers.
(I also prefer to choose which updates are installed.)
