    It seems like a driver for either an Intel graphics adapter or some other Intel hardware. At what point in the setup is Windows requesting this file?

    File driver path

    You asked at what point of the download does it call for the file path;

    There are 5 steps to installing windows xp.
    At the 4th step, the installation process stops and asked for file path.
    The file's name is in my first email to you.

    Thanks for your interest,

    It's not clear from your post.. did you manage to get XP installed in spite of the prompt? Are you installing from a Microsoft XP CD? Or are you using an OEM XP CD? (like from Dell or HP)

    If XP is up and running do this:
    • Click Start->Run, enter: msinfo32. Click the + sign next to Components to expand it
    • Click Problem Devices. Anything appear?
    • If yes, click on it, Ctrl-A to select all, Ctrl-C to copy it, Ctrl-V to paste into next post
