WinXP Setup Cannot copy oembios.bin
  

Installing a fresh copy of windows XP home edition on a Intel Celeron 2.0 Ghz. Everything seems to go well (i.e. formatting HD) until it comes to copying window files it stops with the error:

“Setup Cannot copy file: oembios.bin”

As far as I know, it could be a hardware problem, so these are what Ive tried:

1. Installing the CD in another PC and it installs fine,
2. So I tried to use a different CD-Drive on your PC problem
3. Tried to change the hard disk
3. Changed the IDE cables, but no luck yet.

I noticed that some files cannot be copied or (different for each attempt), but always comes oembios.bin thus bypass the copy of these files only ends with the Blue Screen of Death!

Re: WinXP Setup Cannot copy oembios.bin

I have a Hp Pavilion 434.uk, Intel Pentium 4 2.66Ghz 512 MB of RAM a 80 GB hard drive and an ATI Radeon 9000. During installation of Windows XP Pro, the file was not copied oembios.bin, he gave me the choice (Retry or Ignore) impossible to force the copy so I ignore the installation’s is continued normally, but when you start Windows, the system sends me an error and suddenly I cannot access any session. I can you tell me what I should do please.

Re: WinXP Setup Cannot copy oembios.bin

With this tutorial get install our Windows XP without problems and from scratch.

To do so the first thing to do is go to BIOS Setup to get it to boot our Windows installation CD once we turn our PC and insert the installation CD into the CD / DVD.

To enter the BIOS Setup press Delete, F2 or F11 (depending on board model) after turning on your PC.

Within the BIOS Setup will look for the Advanced BIOS Features option and press ENTER on this option.

Will post following options:
- First Boot Device - CDROM
- Second Boot Device - HDD-0

We return to the previous menu and select Save & Exit Setup and agree with Y and ENTER.

NOTE: Setup configuration can change from one to another. In other BIOS boot sequence is in the Boot Sequencer section instead of being included in Advance BIOS Features.

With the CDROM in the CD / DVD reboot your computer to begin installing Windows XP.
A message like the one shown in the picture below. Press any key.

The installation begins to copy files and start the device, while we wait.

When we reach this point you are pressing ENTER to confirm installation of Windows on your hard disk.

Here we show the Windows license that we must accept by pressing F8 to continue installing Windows XP.

Now prepare the hard disk to install Windows XP files.

Select a partition if it had been eliminated and pressing D.

Confirm your deletion by pressing L and then press ENTER.

Here we show the unpartitioned space that is similar to the volume of the partition just delete.
Press C to create the partition, and accept the confirmation with ENTER.

In this new screen select a Quick NTFS format disk and press ENTER.

** If you have any suspicion of drive failure it is best NOT to use the Quick Format option and do a normal format. This will take much longer, but we will check the integrity of your hard drive (at least that partition, which is the most important).

Then the partition is formatted, it will install the basic files and automatically restarts the computer as shown in these images. While we wait without pressing any key.

From now the installation will continue in a graphical and easier.

Re: WinXP Setup Cannot copy oembios.bin

Hello everyone, I had to completely reformat my PC from the CD time ago. When finished, the PC has restarted and files are copied until it says "file can be copied OEMBIOS.bin" or sth like that. To complete the installation of I ignore the message. Anyone know what it is this file, is it important? If I run my antivirus program, it crashes on that file and I hear him trying to read the disc. What can I do to restore this file?
