I had a major systems crash on my machine, it rebooted on its own accord then blue screens starting popping up on restarts etc etc. Anyway I repartionted and formatted my Hard drives.

Now I get the same error when i go to install XP. I have tried booting from the CD and using \I386\winnt method.

Did you ever find a solution?

P.S. I'd install 98 or ME but for some reason they wont copy the initial setup files, just put me back to a DOS prompt after running setups from a ME boot disk.

Error Msg: "An unexpected error (258363000) occured at line 1768 d:\xpclient\base\boot\setup\arcdisp.c."

I am running Asus A7M266, Athlon 1.33Ghz, 256 DDR PC2100 (1 Stick), Geforce 2 GTS 64mb, 2 Western Digital HD's (20&80GB).
