Thanks... useful reference Put the HDD from the Other machine (Which I know works) into my machine and tried installing.
I have 16 gigs of ddr3 ram and a 2g gtx950. Sorry, there was a problem flagging this post. Mattura Sander Sassen Dec 31, 2004, 05:53am EST Reply - Quote - Report Abuse Private Message - Add to Buddy List >>Re: "setup cannot copy file" error when installing windows
My system is set up as follows: System Set Up: Mobo: Abit KT7A-Raid CPU: Athlon Thunderbird 900 Mhz RAM: 768 mb PC133 Video: Gainward GeForce 4 ti4200 128 Sound: Soundblaster Live! I'm not sure even that will work... I was a little confused because Memtest86 pretty much just takes off when you start your computer (and, as he states on his website, will run indefinitely). As further verification, I added the fourth known bad module to the other three and once again the computer would not properly boot (or, again, shut off).
I would be most appreciative for any input on solving this trouble.... I recently started having problems with the system shutting down, continuous automatic reboots, Blue screen etc. jasonc, May 15, 2006 #3 Advertisements Show Ignored Content Want to reply to this thread or ask your own question? this page Does this signify a particular problem?

Did you use a modded bios? However I can install win 98 and Win ME on my machine which is where I am getting confused.

Thanks very much, Vel, and thanks, Michael Caruso, for your spot-on help. I have a Compaq 7360, and someone recommended that I can upgrade to xp. i'll see if install is stable....Click to expand... Before attempting to install XP Pro...I made certain that I had updated the BIOS & Highpoint drivers to the latest versions...so I'm not sure what might be the issue.
I have three copies of XP, I tested them on another system and they install fine so that rules out a corrupt disk. You can only upload files of type 3GP, 3GPP, MP4, MOV, AVI, MPG, MPEG, or RM.
