Laptop HD files recovery saga continues

  Will 14:58 12 Mar 2004

Tried XP instalation disk repair - no go, tried connecting HD to Desktop PC - no go. Finally I have downloaded XP setup/recovery disks from Microsoft and hoped these would at last let me into XP! I put thee first file in and the screen said checking hardware configeration and then it came uop with the following "INF file Txtsetup.sif is corrupt or missing, Status 13 setup cannot continue. Press any key to continue". I thought boot disks wee the ultimate recovery tool and they provided their own files? Can anybody enlighten me?
