I ammtrying to do a reapair install with XP pro but now stuck at 39 mins left to install, it keeps asking for extra files eg NT5INF.CAT and I cant either find it or specify the correct path.

help

have you tried pulling the plug and switching back on. With luck it will go through the install again correctly. A further thought take your cd out and clean it. The symptoms described could indicate that the drive cannot read the cd properly.

Thanks, I was rushing when I 1st posted!! What I mean is when I go through the set up routine it ends up back at copy files. I will do as you suggest and pull the plug out etc. I have switched off but not took plug out, I have cleaned the disc, this bit about asking for files is known but no fix or at least I have not found it.

if you can start up using a floppy with cd support and you have a second drive or partition you could copy the cd to it and then run the setup from there.
