\windows boot fails biosinfo.inf

Following a major failure of windows, I have bought 2 new sata drives, configured them as Raid 0 (confirmed by POST) and am now trying to install windows XP Pro from the 6 boot diskettes.

After running disk 1, it comes back with the error "File \biosinfo.inf could not be loaded. The error code is 4096. Setup cannot continue" and I can do nothing else.

This is exactly the same error I received, at the same point, as when I was trying to save my previous install by running these disk.

I have now removed the old hard drives, and have two blank new ones.

How can I get the same error?

Any ideas would be most welcome as this is driving me mad now!!

Thx.

Thanks Santos7,

In the end it turned out to be a dodgy floppy disk. Simply using another floppy solved the problem! All those hours wasted looking for a complex solution! Aarrghh!

So for other users with this problem - try a new floppy.

Thx
