I decided i need to format my laptop as it had loads of crap on there and i was using Windows XP.

Anyway when i tired to install XP again, i got some errors with copying files it seemed :( The error messages said that Setup couldn't copy a file.

Heres a list of the ones it listed and couldnt find:

rio8drv.sys
riodrv.sys
tosdvd.sys
p3.sys
parport.sys
swenum.sys
processr.sys
dmstyle.dll
sonydcam.sys
stream.sys

I had to skip every file to continue with the installation :(

So does anyone know what i should do next ?



Edit: Also i got near to the last stages of installation and it said this:

Cannot Install this Hardware

There was a problem installing this hardware:

System

An error occurred during the installation of the device

The data is invalid

Click Finish to close the wizard


What should i do :wacko:

Thanks, Daniel :)

The CD you are using to install is either badly scratched or poorly written. Try with a brand new copy and see if the issues are still persistent.

I bet there was a file called usb.sys (or alike) that wasn't copied over either.... Reinstall the laptop using a GOOD source and check again. Good luck!

Please read the rules, folks!
