Hello everyone. New here. A buddy of mine has a Dell Laptop with Windows XP Pro installed. He's getting the dreaded PCI. SYS file error. I found this thread here: www.techspot.com/vb/topic16553.html I followed the links to the site that gives instructions on how to make a slipstreamed Windows XP CD to fix this problem. That site is here: www.theeldergeek.com/slipstreamed_xpsp2_cd.htm Problem is, when I try to complete step 1, which is copying the entire contents of the Windows XP CD into the XP Folder, I get this error message: cannot copy file. cannot read source file or disk Now what?
