Hi. I'm setting up XP Pro on one of my computers. Ok, done this a million times, shouldn't be a problem. WELL IT IS! It formats the hd fine, and starts to copy files, and then it goes downhill. Windows XP Professional Setup ======================= The file blue_ss.dll was not copied correctly. The file Setup placed on your hard drive is not a valid Windows XP system image. If you are installing from a CD, there may be a problem with the Windows XP CD. To retry, press ENTER. If you continue to recieve this message, contact your Windows XP supplier or system administrator. To skip this file, press ESC. CAUTION: If you skip this file, Setup may not complete and Windows XP may not work properly. To quit Setup, press F3. Enter=Retry ESC=Skip Files F3=Quit I've tried 3 different discs, 2 different disc drives, and keep getting this error. It's not always the same file though. I'm re-installing XP because I had an install, about 15 days old that just kinda starting crashing miserably and had a lot of problems. It would BSOD at least daily, blaming a driver, and programs and services would crash constantly. My setup: Gigabyte GA-K8NS AMD Athlon 64 2800+ eVGA e-GeForce FX 5500 256MB PQI 512MB DDR 400 Seagate 40gb STA340810A Lite-On JLMS-HD1665 OptoRite CD-RW CW5202 ATI TV Wonder VE IOFLEX-FW4 Real PC Power 550W El-cheapo floppy drive XP Service Pack 1 is the CD. Is my hard drive going out? I've had a few lost and corrupt files in the past few weeks, and it's been acting strangly. The other night I got a fresh install of XP and it BSOD'd and blamed it on a driver. Any ideas? All help is appreciated.
