XP pro installin can't copy files during fresh install on a new drive


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.

Welcome to WindowsBBS

A few specs of dust on the cd drive can cause this.

Clean the disk, same outcome. about 35 files will not copy. Not really sure I need them but... I've also taken the system down to just the harddrive, DVD drives, 1gb of memory and on-board video. Any other ideas?

Found the problem thought you'd find interesting or maybe not. It was a bad stick of memory.

Hi sball,

Thank you for posting back and letting us know you found the problem and where it was. A lot of people don't take the time and it gets frustrating not knowing if any suggestions\fixes worked or the poster found the solution. The feedback helps the pro's here add to their arsenal of "fixes" so that when someone else has a similar problem, they've got one more item to help others. Thanks, again.
