I assume you are trying to reinstall WinXP or an audio player: This refers to WinXP install but all the replies I found on your issue point to the same thing. FIRST OF ALL: There is also a known parasite/trojan that will cause these errors. I assume you have completed a FULL antivirus scan, checked for trojans and run AdAware to remove spyware, if not do that FIRST.

Here's some links to free apps to help keep the system running properly;
AdAware: http://www.lavasoft.nu (a must have)
AVG Free antivirus (WAY better than Norton or MacAffee) http://www.grisoft.com

You may also want to try some free online trojan scans just to identify anything you may have missed. NOTE: ALWAYS RUN UPDATES FOR THESE PROGRAMS BEFORE RUNNING THEM!!!

If you have scanned and tested as above,

Shift+F10, kill the process, WinXP should continue loading, and around 23 MORE minutes left to go, the
monitor will flash several times. Don't panic.

Once loaded, get past the
"Microsoft in a box" screens: next, finish. Once on the desktop, log in a
user with system admin capabilities (hopefully you still have one). Go to
C:\windows\sr.inf. Right click and select Install. It will ask for sr.sys.
Get this OFF the CD!!! The one on C: is corrupt. On the CD, under the I386
folder, you will find sr.sy_. Double click it and it SHOULD decompress
itself and load. (Microsoft tech suggests as a convenience, load directory
I386 from
CD to C: (root) for ease of use NEXT TIME you have a problem! :-0 )

That is the fix for the MSDart, repair/reinstall WinXP problem.
