Files Not Found During The Copying Stage
If you get files not found during the copying stage, restart the repair install after
inspecting the CD for any surface imperfections and if you have multiple CD
drives, switch to the other CD drive.
Also check the hard drive cables making sure
they are the proper cable and seated tightly in the connections.
If the problem is not resolved, and you have no other option, continue with the install
by closing all the files not found message windows until setup finishes.
Apply the XP firewall, then run Windows update after reaching the desktop and the
missing files should be replaced.
You should backup ALL data if you haven't done so prior to the repair install before
making any other changes to the system.
If the system seems unstable, run defrag, reboot a few times and trouble shoot any
error messages. If system cannot recover, double check if you have all data you can
not replace backed up and the proceed with a Clean install
