I am trying to get a desktop up and running that was left at my house by my friend when he moved. I was advised to re-install XP so that I could have a fresh start, but when I did the installation stopped. Giving an error code that intl.inf could not be copied press enter to continue, esc to skip file and f3 to quit installaion...

You need to set the CD/DVD drive first in the boot order in the BIOS, then insert the XP CD in the drive, then restart the computer.

If all goes well, a Press any key to boot from CD command will appear.

It's then a matter of following the instructions in each screen that appears.

This is basically what you need to do:

1. Delete all current partitions

2. Create a new C partition

3. Format that new C partition in the NTFS file system

4. Install XP in C:\WINDOWS

The entire process will involve 2 restarts.

Do NOT press any key when the above command appears during each restart.

Remove the XP CD after the second restart.
