    What does it do when you try to install WinXP?

    Is that a legit copy of XP that you are using...?

    It does sound as if you have a bad copy of Windows XP. Go purchase the real stuff and try again. Since Windows 2000 loads properly, you have already learned that it isn't a hardware problem.

    I had the same EXACT problem with my computer at first. I never did find out what was going on. It was a store bought XP edition and M$ tech support talked to me for a long time, but in the end they pretty much said that it wasn't their product causing the problem. They said they'd send me another disk just in case it was bad (which I never got :).

    What worked in the end was this: changing different components.

    When I swapped my video card out and put my old one in it installed without a hitch, whereas just a few minutes before it was giving me those cannot copy errors.

    I have since reinstalled XP a few times on my machine without swapping any parts and it has worked flawlessly.

    I know this post seems pretty pointless, as I don't really know what my solution was, but my advice is just to KEEP TRYING. Try swapping different parts if you have them.

    Let us know what happens
