  1. Just partitioned and formatted my new homebuilt's hardrive,
    got the xp disc to boot. about half way thru I get 2 errors.

    1- setup cannot copy the file oledbvbs.in_., so I elected to continue

    2- " " " " " sv2512.pn_ , and continued again.

    Is this because it's a new HDD.

    Am I going to have problems leaving it as is.

    Thanks a lot

    I have a feeling it's either your CD or your optical drive. Do you have another optical drive on this machine? If so maybe you can try installing from the other one.

    i'll try another re-format and install.
    thanks.
