Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
I've reformatted several times (complete, not quick) and now it doesn't even copy all the files to the windows installation folders...42 to be exact, but I click "skip" and it tries to install, as before, but it stops with 39 minutes to go, same as when it did copy "all" files.
I also tried installing on my other HDD in the same computer and the same result; happens with "different" installation disks, too.
Any help will be appreciated, a Microsoft wants to charge me!

Sound like the memory then. As we all know its a process of elimination. That said, I've never been able to do a clean install with a USB keyboard and Mouse. I always reverted to a PS2 keyboard and Mouse as those drivers usually need to be installed separately was back from the Windows 95/98 days, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't be able to do so with XP.
Your OEM disk could be bad. All you need is the Product Key, so you could download an iso image and put it on a drive to install from there. All this you probably konw.
Anyway, you are doing everything as I would have done. You should join us here at Fix Ya and become an Expert. Its stimulating to help out with this board as it is extremely challenging, much harder than fielding a phone call.
Good Luck, but you'll do fine.
