    I am reformatting and reinstalling Windows XP Home in my dell inspiron 600m and I got the following error during the installation:

    Setup cannot copy the file vga.dll.

    Anyone know how to fix it? What happens if I choose to ignore the warning and install the Windows anyway?

    thanks

    You may be able to finish the installation without that file if another driver can be found for the display by setup. But the chances are that this is not the end and there will be more files. Give it a try and see what happens.

    What is currently on the drive?

    Make sure the CD is in good shape and clean.

    I was trying to do fresh installation. I got corrupted system file and then no boot sector and lastly error loading operating system. I tried to fix with fixmbr and fixboot but I think I overwrote the boot sector and the old partitions were lost so I just decided to delete them and start a fresh installation.

    The CD is not scratched at all and I ran memtest86 last night. It did not find any error.

    What could possibly cause this?
