Re: Win Xp Cd cannot install xp files.
first of all, are you sure that your hard drive is good? and did you do a full format before you tried to install it? is the cd scratched or anything?
if it doesn't work after you try it again, I would take it back to best buy, you might have gotten a defective cd or something.
