I bought a new mother board (MSI 848P NEO) and try as I might I cannot get any version of windows to install. Every time I try to load it stops and the screen announces that a file has not loaded and asks me to retry or skip. If I retry to load nothing happens. It cant be dirty discs because I have used all of them several times before. I have windows XP home,XP pro, 2000 pro, 98 and ME. The results are the same regardless. I have managed to get 2000 loaded albeit minus files which wont allow me to install drivers etc. I have four cd/dvd rom drives to choose from and I have tried them all.
any suggestions at this stage would be appreciated.
I have had this exact same problem before. All I did was to choose ignore, then when it asked for the file much later on in the instilation is said please put in a path for it. Then just browse to the correct folder and continue. (the files were there, I am not sure why they werent being seen at first though). Might not be the same problem as me, but try it anyway.
