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!

A fresh install of a legal copy of XP will most likely solve one problem. OTOH, it sounds like you have some sort of hardware issue with the computer that is crashing if you can't even get through the install.
