I can't get windows to install. I keep getting the same error that windows can't copy the following files:
processr.sys
nic1394.sys
sonydcam.sys
msh263.drv
ntkrnlpa.exe

I tried using different XP install disks, different hd, different cd drive, different graphics card.

The mobo and cpu are new and I suspect one of them.

Asus K8V with AMD 64 chip.

any ideas?

Scrached CD? Bad Ram? Bad IDE cables on the cd-rom drive and/or hard drive? bad sectors on the harddrive?

Well if you've tried everything but the CPU and motherboard, chances are, its one of those two.. :p

Could be the processor and/or chipset are over heating...
