Alright, we were trying to reformat a drive because we wanted to install a valid XP Program over a pirated Norton Ghost program. When just loading it up it would run both programs so we attempted to totally reformat the drive to get the Good XP Home to run properly. When we finished reformatting everything and hit the "Installing Windows" area we get a Stop Error. The code for that was
0x000000F4 (OXOOOOOOO3, OX81F18020, OX81F18194, 0X805FA7AB)
After that we tried restarting, going f8, and it won't run in safe mode (obviously since the program isn't completely loaded) and therefore we can't delete the files it wants us to. We aslo ran a recovery disc and it just brought us back to the same place and shut it down.
Help would be greatly appreciated, I hope I'm not irritating anyone with a repeat as I have looked and anything similar isn't really helping us.
We used these directions to reformat.
There was only one partition.
The size of the hard drive is 19.5
Oh, and we could smell cat piss inside the computer.
