Hi, "Cannot copy file" Error occurs when the setup fails to read the data/ file from the CD/DVD. This could be due a corrupt, scratched or dirty CD or weak/ faulty CD/DVD Drive. Try to clean the CD with a CD Cleaner or mild glass cleaner using a soft lint-free cloth and remove and smudges etc. Better if you try another CD. Else, clean the lens of the CD Drive or replace it temporarily with a working CD Drive for installation.Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!CreativeTECH

When you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key then you can enter in bios screen. Make sure hardddisk is detected in bios. Then check.

Then go to boot option and set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom . Then save and exit. Then it boot with recovery disk. Then follow the procedure on screen. Then choose new installation of windows. Then select 1 partiition to install windows then format with fat32 or ntfs. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks.
Hy there, Here are some hints for you: 1, do a bios clear, there could be something setup incorrectly. 2, try to start setup with only 1 module of ram, no matter how small it is a 256mb is barly enough for windows setup. 3, Check your cooler if it perfoms correctly , on cooling amd is sensitive on overheating in the series of socket 462. 4, Check your hard drive for bad sectors or damages , yes a new one can contain some. 5, Replace your Optical drive.
If all thease are corect it could be a problem with the motherboard or the processor.
Hi miss, is you're new SATA being seen in you're bios?
To check this. At boot up press the Delete key every two seconds until the bios main menu loads.
You should see the new SATA listed here. If you do not see you're new drive listed than shut down the PC & unplug the power cord. Remove the data cable & clean it with a cotton swab & some house hold alcohol. (no dripping). Wipe off both ends of
the data cable & the drive's connector. ( Allow time to dry).
Re-connect every thing & again check you're bios. If you're drive is listed than you can use you're current windows to format the drive. I gather you're current windows is running correctly.
If you get a error message from windows during format, do not worry, yet!
I suggest you download the drive's Mfg's software tools & use this to test & setup the SATA drive. Locate the white sticker on the new SATA drive. There you'll find the model number & serial number. Write the drives information down on paprer for later. You can register you're SATA drive later at the Mfg's site.
Most Mfg's have bootable software for a floppy disk & the same to creat a bootable CD-ROM disk so you can setup & test you're new drive which is what I am suggesting you do. You will need to disconnect you're other SATA drives while using the bootable software. (Just unplug their data cable). No need to unplug the power to the drive - (s).
I am sure you will be able to setup and test you're new drive. Once finished, reconnect everything. Double check everything before closing up the case. Boot you're system. Windows should see you're new drive.
Simply....... no. Once formatted it's reinstall time.
You can load you're windows cd into the cdrom drive & try to get windows to load. If you do get the cdrom to load - (Press any key to load from cd...... ) & press any key. Once in windows setup ( DO NOT format the drive) but do reinstall windows, if windows see's another windows on your drive, great install over it. If windows does re-install it's self you should have enough time to install burner software & back up your personal data to CD or DVD before your partition looses it's cookies & shuts you down.
You can also leave it alone & install another drive & setup windows complete & slave it back into you're system for IDE.
SATA's are all master drives. Than copy your data back to you're new drive. In these cases I always suggest the user go to the web site of the hard drive & download the Mfg's bootable software tool's/setup utilities. Windows is not perfact at formatting.
the hard drive registered in the standard cmos utility is the only one that could be registered for boot in advanced cmos setup and no other, if your usb hard drive and pen drive could be registered in the advanced cmos setup - where boot options are registered, surely it will boot your pc.
