Okay, well that looks really confusing and since I can't get a darned thing working on here I don't know what to do...

I've rebooted and it goes right to the install screen. it now says:

Fatal Error

manifest parse error : invalid at the top level of the document

Can I just format the drive and try from the beginning again? This is really pissing me off, LOL!!!

Hi Me again...

I'll try again.. no one wants to help me!

I have tried what MS said but didn't work.. first of all I don't have the discs for Me or 98 second edition. Tried switching drives and that didn't work.

Can I just re-install my 2000? I don't know how to get past this XP setup screen w/errors. How can I start from disc and install my 2000?? (and yes, it's LEGAL!)

Please help someone!

Thanks a bunch!

RESOLUTION
To resolve this issue, use another Windows XP CD-ROM to install Windows XP. If this option is not available to you, contact the Microsoft Order Desk to order replacement media from Microsoft.
