There are too numerous previous programs with the intention of the customer does not encompass the install packages for so a clean install is out. If I encompass the CD in, it immediately errors out.

The solution is uncomplicated you necessitate to insert your windows xp disk into an additional system and copy the i386 folder to an additional location. Preferably something similar to a usb stick or in my case an ipod when inquire to insert the windows disk basically revolutionize the search position to your selected apparatus (usb stick or ipod). Then extremely simply alienated the CD and Hard drive. One was on the most important IDE correlation on the motherboard, and the additional was on the Secondary correlation. My system permits me to tell which to boot commencing. Other than subsequent to HOURS of frustration, a uncomplicated reconnect inside and XP installed easily.
