I'm trying to get XP installed on a new hard drive, but keep getting all kinds of errors. First I was getting errors related to the hard drive, then the RAM, and now I'm being told that some files are missing or can't be copied from my CD: dbgeng.dll and rastapi.dll. I tried to find them for download, but couldn't.
Then I downloaded the 6 bootable disk from Microsoft. They were working fine until I got to disk four and was informed that file hidusb.sys is corrupt.
I tried the CD again and got the final message,
One of the components that Windows needs to continue setup could not be installed.
A component's file does not match the verification information present in the component manifest.
and in the setup log:
Error: SXS.DLL: syntax error in manifest or policy file "E:\1386\asms\6000\MSFT\VCRTL\VCRTL.MAN" on line 11
Has anyone had a problem like this before? Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks for your help!
