XP Pro installation

Hi,

I am trying to install XP Pro SP2 on a new 160GB SATA drive for Dell
Dimension XPS Gen 4 tower.

The hard drive gets detected ok, i am able to format the drive and when the
installation of the files begins its able to install 57% then a blue screen
saying the following files could not be loaded, do i want to Retry, Skip or
Exit.

If i select Skip i then get the prompt again for another file which couldnt
be loaded, i thought it might have been my Win XP DVD so tried another same
problem.

I have even tried a completly different HDD and still the same problem.

Never come across this before

thanks for your help

First - why do you have a Windows XP DVD? Windows XP came on CD or multiple
CDs depending on the edition.

Tried a different CD drive? Different cable for the CD drive and/or hard
disk drive? Tried different system memory?
