W2K Pro Install ? File Copy Error

By bkubai ·
I am trying to upgrade my Compaq Armada M700 from NT4 to W2K Pro. At the end of file copying I get a File Copy Error message which says:

An error occurred copying file to C:\$WIN_NT$.~BT\.


I chose to skip file and the process continues, but stops with the following error:


File cpqpx4.sys could not be found
Press any key to continue

After pressing the key the following message appears:

Setup failed. Press any key to restart your computer.

However the computer is unable tostart and I have to reboot and chose to run NT 4.

The file cpqpx4.sys appears in the C:\WINNT\System32\drivers directory. What could be cause of my problems?

I had uninstalled Compaq Diagnostics for Windows NT although the setup program is still recognising it as present and the icon is still in the Control Panel.

Try to copy the complete \I386 folder from Win2k CD to your local drive (let's call it C:)". If you get error message while copying files, you need to ask for replacement CD. Then open command prompt and enter

C: REM or drive where you copied install files.
CD \I386
winnt32
