Today was another "hey, can you please format and installed XP on my laptop" request. Being the bored person, I agreed and took it in. It was a Compaq Armada M700. First thing I did was turn it on and all of a sudden, a ton of "FILES MISSING" messages kept popping up. So I thought "forget this" and went straight to inserting a disc, resetting it and going through formatting it. But when it went to the installing Windows XP part, I got a "Setup cannot copy ______". I skipped that. Then suddenly another CANNOT COPY. And another. And another. It was at that point that the HDD was formatted but I cannot install XP on it. Any ideas?
