xp installation

By geo611200 ·
I am trying to install xp home on a computer. I get to the setup files and it stops in the middle of it. It tells me it cannot copy the file. If i skip the file it does the same thing to the next.
Please help.

From Past Experience every time that I have seen this happen there has been a Hardware problem occurring. It is mostly connected to RAM either being Faulty or New RAM has been added which has a Timing Issue and is causing the system to Lockup and become unresponsive.

Get yourself a Copy of the Ultimate Boot CD and test your Hardware then fix any problems that are found. Once this is done you should find that XP installs without a problem.
