Question about HP Pavilion a1220n (A1220NED904AA) PC Desktop
The original drive got corrupted.
I put in a fresh drive but When Windows XP transfers setup files to the drive it displays over a dozen error messages saying certain files cannot be copied??!
What does THAT mean?
Although it installs the majority of files, the windows installation eventually fails.
Are the files being read incorrectly or is it unable to write the files to the hardboard.
I wish the techs who write these error messages were actually human!
I tried a different cd-rom drive...same error messages...
I tried a different hard drive....same error messages...
I use HP's own recovery disks....same messages...
This has become supremely frustrating.

Maybe I can help;
When I install a new hard drive I like to re-install the operating system (OS) as well. Unfortunatly this wipes out all your files.
Typically when files do not copy it's either because they're in use or the media (your new hard drive) is not formatted properly.
Note, formatting erases everything on the drive being formatted.
Instruction for this are easy to find online but are all done for you if you use the OS install CD which will walk you through the setup, formatting, and partitioning.
If you have a way to save your files to another drive such as a usb thumb drive, external hard drive, cd or dvd, I would go about it that way. There's usually alot of uneeded files created by the operating system after a period of time and there's no sense in keeping them. They only slow your system down.
One other thing you can consider if you don't have an external hard drive is purchasing a hard drive enclosure for your old hard drive. You can find them at Best Buy. I paid about $30. Its just a case and usb cord you can use as an external hard drive and also copy any files you can still access on this old drive over to your new one.
Let me know if this helps you
