I have been trying to install XP pro sp2
on a new WD 500gb sata
drive using Intel Matrix storage technology and AHCI.
I get through the full format then start copying files using Intel Istor utility that came with the mother board and that I choose when I selected F6 at the beginning of trying to install XP.
There are about 20 files that won't install some DLL, exe and sys. If I run repair some of the files that were not able to be copied now are copied and others are not copied. Some of the files not copied are ri8drv.sys & riodvr.sys, vdmindvd.sys, usrcntra.dll, usrfaxa.dll, spnike.dll and other usrd**.dll type files.
I have used a differnet copy of XP pro that I have for a different computer get the same behavior some of the same files and some different files it can't copy.
I've installed both copies on a notebook sata
harddrive with no problems.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
