Hi I have a problem in this computer which was installed over the old 98SE OS. with
the recovery CD 'XP home edition from Acer'. The working is OK but since the
Hard drive is 20GB. only, I intend to fixed a old xp pro OS. 40GB. hard disk, to
reformat it and install a new version of XP Pro w/SP2. I remove the 20GB. hdd.
and in place put the 40GB. hdd. to reformat using XP pro CD. I have also set the
BIOS to boot first for CDROM. When I restart the computer it seem it could not
boot the XP CD, a pop up saying 'Windows could not start because of an error in
the software.
Pls. report this as: load needed DLLs for kernel'. What does it mean by that how
do I going to solve this problem. Thanking you.

PS. Product name: Acer power sd.
