I have just reformatted my computer. I installed SP1 and now I'm trying to upgrade it to SP2 with the upgrade disc I have. When the disc starts up I click install windows XP. It takes about 1min until I get anything from the cd and a error message comes up saying:


The option to upgrade will not be available at this time
the i/o operation has been aborted because of either a thread exit or application request



I have googled this and people are getting the same errors but in different ways. I suppose this is a port error? Any help would be greatly appreciated! I need SP2!

This could be a read/write error.
Try running chkdsc (check disc) on your hard drive first
How to run checkdisk from recovery console (Windows xp). (Courtesy dsenette)
  • Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.
    Note:Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted to do so.
  • When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
    Note:If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
  • When you are prompted to do so, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
  • At the Recovery Console command prompt, type the following then press Enter:

    chkdsk /r

  • Allow this to run UNDISTURBED until completed (45 min or so)
  • Report any errors
If the install does not work after this try updating the drivers for your CD/DVD

So I ran the chkdsk /r i guess it found a few things and fixed them. I exited out of it and restarted the computer then went to see if the cd would work after running chkdsk, still gave me the same problem. Then I looked up drivers for the cd. All the firmware updates are through floppy and cds ... I cannot get any to just install while I am on? I have no floppy or cd burner attached to this notebook.

IBM T22
