    I upgraded my hard drive on my home computer, prior to reinstalling Windows
    XP Home Edition on the new hard drive, I installed Windows 98, then I began
    the installation of XP Home Edition. At about 60+ % installation my computer
    started giving me error messages that files could not be copied, and that the
    Windows image on the CD was not valid. I was unable to complete the
    installation of Windows XP.
    My MS software supplier says they are not responsible and to contact MS. I
    attempted to contact MS regarding the invalid (????) disk image and not being
    able to reinstall Windows XP, but there is a charge when I enter my product
    ID #.
    First, this is a valid MS CD bought from a large retailer, and I had it
    loaded on my computer prior to wanting to reload on my new hard drive, and
    second, I don't believe I should have to pay to have this confirmed. Has
    anyone else experienced this problem: not being able to reload XP?

    You need to do some troubleshooting, the most common causes of file copy
    errors during setup are bad memory, a bad hard drive, a bad CD/DVD drive, or
    defective installation media, check the disk to make sure there are no
    scratches or cracks.
