"Setup cannot copy the file comrepl.dl_.
Ensure that the disk labeled 'Windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM' is in the drive selected below, or provide the location where this can be found."
Now inserting the Pro cd when this error has come for the files before this has worked. I've tried making a copy of the HE cd and using that instead of the original and that hasn't helped. I've also tried copying all the files from the HE cd to a external hard drive to try and install it from that and that hasn't worked either. I cannot switch the computer off cause going through that process for all the previous files is way too time consuming. What can be done? Can I skip installing this file?

You could remove the video card and soundcard, leave one stick of ram memory in, disconnect everything but the monitor keyboard and mouse then try it

Hoping that works I should be able to proceed so please tell me about this. I have an Intel D875PBZ motherboard. I have 3 hard drives. 2 are SATA and one is IDE. The IDE is currently connected as Secondary Slave. My OS was on one of the SATA hard drives previously but now I want to install the OS on the IDE hard drive, for this, do I need to remove the other two hard drives? Also, once the OS is installed on the IDE hard drive will it always be the boot option?
What I'm going to do is, keep all softwares on the IDE hard drive (it's the smallest of the three having only 40GB as opposed to the other two having 80GB each) and install my games on one of the other drives and store my music, pictures etc on that other drive too basically leaving the IDE hard drive ONLY for Windows files, softwares I install and Windows Updates. Will this be fine or would I get better performance keeping the OS and games and stuff on just one hard drive?

You want Windows and programmes on one drive
Audio / Video / Images and documents etc can be on any of the drives

Sorry for the quality of the pics, I couldn't locate my digi or vid cam and had to use my phone instead.
