If anyone can possibly understand how completely frustrating this is, please post a friendly way to get out of it.
We Wiped my C-Drive out so that we could reinstall it - the primary files have been installed (C:\Windows Files), and now the rest needs to be installed. I can't log on to my own computer and it is killing me, because I photo-edit, I goof around just like you, play games, and I listen to music.
Anyways, look to the attachment for the error I am seeing. I've tried 3 different discs: 2 CD-R boot discs made by Windows XP Pro SP 2, and for the heck of it a Windows XP Install Disc. It asked me only when I put the regular XP disc in to put the XP Pro SP 2 disc in (meaning either one because they both didn't say this).
That's the info. I have. Look to the rest of the thread for more steps that we've followed.
