Hi...I'm having a new problem reformating my pc with windows xp pro...i did
the image file and the Iso. and all that stuff but when i put the cd inside
the cd.rom evrything went well and then when it got to the part where it says
installing windows this popped up:

Fatal Error
------------
-One of the components that windows needs to continue setup could not be
installed.
-The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.

Hello dannie91,

What do you mean with i did the image file? Did you create your XP Pro disk
from an iso file? The error message sounds that the cd you are using is broken,
so use the original disk or create a new one from the iso file.

Best regards

well how is it that home edition could not be upgraded in 2000 and professional edition could???
hmmm that sounds very weird....
the cd is fine but i think my computer is missing a piece, so probably
that's why i can't upgrade....idk im still confused....another thing is that
idk if the disk is bootable....and i don't have the original disk....so i
still don't know what to do
