I have inherited an old PC and an W2KPro disc with key (not at the same time and from different sources). The old PC had the HDD cleaned professionally prior to being passed on "maybe to use as spares". My idea was to get it up and running as word processor (and probably simple games) for my friends children, but I am having problems installing the OS. First, it won't boot from the disc. I have d/l and produced 4 floppy's as a prelude to loading the OS, but always it goes so far then fails with the following error message: "The following value in the .SIF file used by Setup is corrupted or missing: Value 0 on the line in section (SourceDisksFiles) with key "sp4.cab." Setup cannot continue. To quit Setup, press F3" Is this pointing to an error in one of the floppy's or the OS disc itself, and is there a work-around. Thanks.
Hi Fruit Bat /\0/\ That's more than likely as the floppy drive hasn't been used for ages and the discs themselves several times. I'll have another go with some new floppies. Thanks for the feedback, as always :-)
