System files cannot be copied during xp home restore. Need help!

I purchased windows vista ultimate a while back and wasnt too pleased with
it, and recently I decided to do a system restore, and instead of restoring
with vista, I figured id try my hand at using the oem disc that came with the
computer (xp home). Well all was running how it should until windows xp was
copying the setup files, for instance it says: "Setup cannot copy the file:
xmlp_beu.xdr" among a few others. It gives me the option of retrying or
skipping it. I retry a few times then resort to skipping it. The setup
finishes and the windows setup screen comes up, Then it gets down to the
step: "Installing windows" it displays a fatal error: " an error has been
encountered that prevents setup from continuing. One of the components that
Windows needs to continue setup could not be installed. access denied. press
OK to view the setup log file." after clicking OK it says " Installation
failed: D:\I386\asms. access denied.

So basically I'm stuck without an operating system at the moment. If anyone
knows anything i can do to fix this please let me know.

Thanks

Fixing the Setup cannot copy the file cmnicfg.xml errors:

You could use a Windows XP installation CD that is not setup for Unattended Installation

Or you can do this:
Download the Gparted ISO and burn it to a CD
Restart your computer, booting from the Gparted CD
Use Gparted to delete, create and format your partition
Restart your computer from the Windows Installation disk and proceed to install Windows XP
