This is probably a problem with your install disk or CD-ROM.
Make sure you are using a genuine CD. You may need to order a replacement CD if you cannot copy or read the file, you might find in seperate attempts taht it gets stuck on different files, too.

How do i install windows xp when it wont let me. i reformated my medion 4215 computer and have problems with putting on win xp i get a message when i try to install xp setupdd.sys


Hi

thank you it would seem that your recovery media i.e. CD or hard driver recovery is corrupted and will need to be replaced as it cannot read the file mentioned

Please replace the CD

How to solve the problem file isapnp.sys caused an unexpected error (32768) at line 5882 in d:/ xpclient/ base/boot/setup.c.


Something is wrong with the file system on the partition in which you try to install XP. Start the install again and this time when asked where do you want XP to be installed delete the old partition and create a new one.

Acer Desktop Veritron M460 will not load Windows XP or Vista!


This problem may occur if the Ntfs.sys file is missing or becomes corrupted when you convert your hard disk to NTFS To resolve this problem, replace the missing or corrupted Ntfs.sys file:
  1. Use the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD to restart your computer.
  2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to select the To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R option.
  3. Type the number of the Windows installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console, and then press ENTER.
  4. Type the administrator password when you are prompted, and then press ENTER. If no administrator password exists, just press ENTER.
  5. At the command prompt, type the following commands (press ENTER after each command): cd \windows\system32\drivers

    ren ntfs.sys ntfs.oldNote This step renames the corrupted Ntfs.sys file to Ntfs.old. If the Ntfs.sys file is not found, the file is missing.
  6. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER: copy cd:\i386\ntfs.sys drive:\windows\system32\driversWhere cd is the drive letter for the CD-ROM drive that contains the Windows XP CD, anddrive is the drive where you installed Windows XP.
  7. Remove the Windows XP CD from your CD-ROM drive, type quit at a command prompt, and then press ENTER to quit the Recovery Console.
  8. Restart the computer.I hope this helps.The other thing I can think of is maybe your harddrive needs a raid driver.If this is a sata drive and an old version of you os,the sata driver may not be already on the disk and you will have to insert one.Let me know if the first solution works,if not we can try the raid driver.

Computer will not boot up.


Boot up your Windows XP on your drive.
Since you have been on that process I assume that you already know those things prior to this solution. I'll just continue the subject after it load all the drivers.

Solution:
1) After you get the "MENU" screen that has a selection of
  • Install XP press "Enter"
  • Press "R" to repair
  • Press "F3" to quit
Select to "Install XP"
2)After you will get a End User License Agreement (EULA), then Press "F8" to accept
3) Then another menu that was stated above. Then this is the time you select the REPAIR option

If you find this Solution helpful please Rank me.

Thank you.

Video Drivers


The file “Windows/System/Drivers/mup.sys” is not actually causing the problem. It’s the next step after mup.sys that’s causing the computer to hang. That next step consists of the OS checking the registry files for plug and play devices.
Some causes are: new or defective hardware installed, corrupted registry, (caused by virus), defective or corrupted hard drive, just to name a few.
Try removing all devices attached to the computer like printer, web cam, flash drives, etc.
If your computer has a PCI or AGP graphics card AND your motherbrd has a VGA connector, remove the video card and use the one on the motherbrd.
If the above doesn’t work, try running “CHKDSK /P” from the Windows recovery console.

XP wont boot not recognising Sata hard disks


if you want to try and get to those files you have best buy another drive and load windows on it . then connect this drive using an external usb adapter/enclosure, not before , not during , only after windows is installed and then you may get to this drives data .if you have luck.
or purchase an enclosure and connect to another computer.
at most you should attempt on this drive is to boot windows and run a repair on the drive. even that can be risky without backed up data.
