  1. I have it on cd but when i try and boot it up i get that message. At the moment i'm just running XP i was wanting to upgrade my OS.

    "Windows Setup"

    "The option to upgrade will not be available at this time becasue Setup was unable to load the file D:/i386/WINNTUPG/NETUP.GRD"

    System cannot find the file.

    "Serial should be in the .ifo file once burned to a disc."

    In order to install xp sp2 black edition without asking for passwords you will have to make a clean install only and everything should work fine
