I`m trying to install XP Pro over Win Millennium and having waited oodles of time, I get the following message. "Installation failed D:\1386asms. Error message: The parameter is incorrect. "
Can anybody help please, I need the second computer for my work.

are you using an upgrade CD ? or a full version ?
Think a upgrade CD is needed here.

I think that should be i386 and not 1386.

Try navigating to the i386 folder on the windows cd and type in winnt.exe

To all of you who replied, I`ve sorted the problem. Having had a thought (brainstorm) about it I went into BIOS, changed the bootup order of Floppy to CD-Rom and vice versa, then put the CD in my DVD rom and switched off. Then I rebooted and everything in the garden was rosy. (Remarkably lovely girl, Rosy!) From my heart, thanks gang.
