I am trying to load Windows XP Pro on to my laptop which is currently using Windows 98 SE. Everything is fine until the actual installation begins. I the get the above message and the install is aborted. The Microsoft website suggests it is a problem with the HDD and checkdisk should be run, The PC won't let me do that but suggests Scandisk instead which I have run with no errors, I have also defragged with no no errors, I don't think there is a problem with the CD, does anyone have any idea what the problem might be?
haveing scoured through some other forums there is a sugestion that you may hvae problems with the optical drive you are useing. all a bit vague but if you have another drive try loading disc from that one or a lens cleaner may help
