I really messed something up. We have a laptop with a corrupt driver for an LG DVD-RW. (Another story - but question mark in Device Mgr, would not delete and reinstall properly). Anyway, after many hours of troubleshooting I decided (for better or worse) to do a repair installation of XP. System booted fine with the XP CD, but when setup reboots, it looks for the CD to continue. The system still refuses to see the DVD drive, so it can't continue. I've tried redirecting setup to an i386 folder on the HD, and even tried using a jump drive with the OS, but setup ends with an error "Setup failed to install Product Catalog". Now I'm stuck. Does anybody have any interesting ideas? I've got the HD out to make a backup, and have copied a current version of i386 to the HD, but I have a feeling this probably won't work.
