Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
I am installing xp on my computer. I had windows me on it before this. The install was going good or so I thought. I started getting prompts to try copying this file or that one or prees esc to skip it so I'd try it again and when it wouldn't copy I'd skip it. Then it went to a blue screen and it said "stop fatal system error" the somthing manager somthing during initalizing unexpectly stopped running and windows will close now for me to hit any key to exit. I did that and tried top restart like it told me to but it just said that windows setup is restarting then it goes right back to the blue stop message.I also got a message that that read a file was missing, couldn't be found or was corrupted I am not an expert obviuosly so when it told me to install it I'm like riggghhhttt oookkk!!!! the file is a set up file and it happened during the initalizing phase of the install. Please help I'm lost.
I would assume that this was caused by scratched or dirty windows disc, or possibly your cd drive is on it's way out. I would try another windows disc. Sorry to the beare of bad news, boot from a diffrent xp disc and re-format and re-partition the drive and go from there. L8R Good Luck

I would hazard a guess that you are using a pirated corporate copy of windows, as there are 2 files on the disc that cannot be copied so you should just start again and when prompted for the two files to be installed press esc to skip it. You wont be able to get any support or updates from microsoft and unless service pack 2 is already built in the instalation which i doubt, the product key of the software will have to be changed in order to install it.
