xp install problems

By jp19_2000 ·
I am trying to install XP Pro onto 2 different computers and getting the same error message on both: "ntkrnlmp.exe could not be found"
"error code is 4"

Cpu 1: dell 4550, P4 2.4 512 mb ram, XP Home

Cpu 2: Emachines, celeron 750Mhz, 256 MB ram, Win Me

things ive tried:
1)ive tried doing upgrade and clean install
2)tried formatting and doing clean reinstall of me then upgrade to xp
3)tried doing format and using xp primer (allow xp setup on clean HDD) disks on clean HDD
4)Tried 4 different copies of XP 3 pro and one home on cpu2

it stops and gives error after first restart after copying data to hdd

ps know disks work, used one on my laptop just fine

with a fresh copy of ME from sytem restore disk i then inserted 2000 upgrade disk and it didnt work properly, i didnt do that install myself i had the cpu's owner do it and he said it was unsuccessful. i will try to do it for myself though and see exactly what the error was since the info i got from him was useless. (he said it stopped late in installation after the 2000 splash screen displayed and said it was looking for a file that was not on CD or HDD, but he didnt write down which file, grrr) i will hopefully have more info tonight. thanks for the continued help, i wish i had more points to give

Try to change out the either the CD-ROM drives or the DVD-ROM drives on those machines. Trust me, i found that out the hard way.

hmm, CD-rom is faulty, lol, didnt think so cause it tests fine and it works, but it only accesses immediately after closing tray, put new CDRW in and everything is ok
