XP Pro reinstall missing file nvrd32.sys

  Duncanf 23:45 26 Jul 2009

As computer has been running a bit slower, I decided to see if a reinstall of XP Pro would help
but installation is coming to a halt with the message 'The file nrvd32.sys could not be found.'
What steps should I take to either 'find' the missing file, get Windows reinstalled again on the existing hard drive, or perhaps install it on a new hard drive?

The file is an Nvidia Raid driver. You may have to copy the raid drivers to a floppy drive and install them via F6 during installation.

Thanks to you both for reply. Will do as suggested and post back. Many thanks.

Can anyone please guide me through the steps I need to take to find the missing NVidia driver above (in simple language?) I have a floppy ready to transfer when f6 is pressed as gengiscant suggested. Another message that has come up when the XP reinstallation disk was started said another file was missing....textsetup.oem. Is it associated with the other file and where can I find it? Thanks in anticipation.
