  1. i tried to install windows and after i formatted and copied all the files over from the cd it get the the blue install screen like it usually would. three out of five of the green bubbles are filled in that say "collecting information" "dynamic update" and "preparing installation" the one that is highlighted right now is at the Installing windows but every time i try to get any further it gives me an error that says "one of the components that Windows needs to continue setup could not be installed" "a components file does not match the varifacation information present in the information manifest." what does this mean? it has never done this to me before and i have no idea what its doing it to me now. please help. any info leading the resolve of this problem would be of great help. thanks.

    Is it an OEM system? Sometimes when you change some things on an OEM system, windows will not install anymore.
