My new system I have made is:

MSI K7N2 Delta
512MB PC3200
XP 2800 333FSB
GeForce4 Ti4600

Just a warning, I don't know if this is software or hardware. So I will post this in both forums.

After I installed everything, I put in, and hookup the HD that already has WinXP Corp(bottleg =[), which runs on my other computer. I startup the computer and let it run. After showing the diagnostic jargon, it continues loading, and goes to a black screen, after that it flashed a BSoD(Blue Sreen of Death) really fast, and restarts.

After this, I put in my backup 24GB harddrive, which is formated and rdy to run. I proceed to install WinXP again, just to see if that works. I continue to boot from the CD and WinXp loads all of the drivers from the CD. Before it even gets to the confirmation screen to install/format WinXP, I get a BSoD again. IT says "Windows has shut down to prevent damage to your computer. Try to remove useless compentents you don't need and turn of caching blah blah blah..." I try installing windows over and over many times and still get the BSoD(Blue Sreen of Death) OR a message will pop up saying "cannot install windows missing file windows/i386/i forgot the name sorry...". WOE IS ME!

I talked to friends of mine and they told me I may need a fresh copy of Windows because it may have files left out or something. I am not sure, so I am posting on the forums just to make sure.

Many Thanks!

uhh,

i think this applies to the situation i was mentioning, when someone tells you they are wanting illegal info.

i dont think anyone will help you with your "Bottleg" (bootleg i am assuming) windows XP problem.

not that i care that you have a bootleg copy, but we arent supposed to help, and especially not if you showed illegal intent.


better luck next time.

hmm

as far as if a new copy will solve your problems, it just might.

it could however be a software problem, but i wouldnt try to install something like a bootleg copy of xp on any machine i didnt know for a fact was working.

(for example only)
i have made some copies for backup of all the os's i own.
some of them are modified in some ways, like a win98se disk that is also a 2.88 meg floppy boot emulation disk with the old dos on it.

they seem to all work fine for me, so unless it was copied badly i cant think of why it would be a problem. so it might be a hardware issue, the only way to know if it was in fact the cd is to use a neat little program that comes with 98se and some other versions of windows (or an equivilent tool) to compare the two disks and see if the backup is a good copy.

on 98se it is windiff.exe

but thats just mostly pertaining to legal backups...

heh

who? me? :rolleyes: :angel:

no, faceless obviously has one. but all my copies are backups of originals i still posses, even if the originals are unreadable...

well, some of them i found ruined, and copied someone elses discs, but thats legal, i have an original, with a key, for every copy i own...



but i know that a good clone is usually a working copy.
unless it was done wrong.
