I am using a very old Dell Inspiron laptop. I was using Windows XP Service Pack 1a when one day there was this virus that probably came from a pop-up of a dodgy site, so being me, I decided to reformat because I did not want to deal with it. I came across my Service Pack 2 reinstallation disk and thought to myself, "Why not?" Well this proved to be a horrible decision. The main use for this computer is this game that I play. After I upgraded to SP2, the game got really freaky and it was not working to the ability I felt was good enough. I wished I could go back to SP1a the way things used to be, so I popped in that disc. One problem: after I "Pressed any key to boot from disk," an error popped up and said:
File i386\biosinfo.inf could not be loaded. Error code 1024
I have tried this several times and I always get the same message. My game does not run sufficiently with SP2. I really want to revert back to SP1, but it appears I can't do so without some extra help. This is what I have already tried:
1. Opened My Computer and searched the SP1 disc. Opened i386 and tried to copy BIOSINFO to My Documents.
The problem with that is when I tried opening i386 it froze. Another time, it said BIOSINFO would not copy.
Anyway, thanks to you all in advance. I really hope we can resolve this problem together.
Quick Edit: I noticed a lot of people have this problem; I see it a lot on other forums, but they dont seem to have the exact same problem as I do. And there has not been many good solutions to this issue.
