Help!
I am trying to install w2k on a think pad and I keep getting this error every time after the w2k finishes formatting the drive and starts to copy the setup files.

setup cannot copy cdfs.sys(other times its d3dref.dll)

it then asks to make sure the w2k install disc is in the drive. (IT is)

If I skip the file WIndows is trashed once the system starts up.

The hard drive is new. I got a replacement from IBM. I tried two different cds.

What can be wrong or what am I misssing?

Most likely why it does not work. Considering it's a back up copy too...

You will need to run the IBM supplied disc for the installation. IBM should supply you with the disc if you call them.

it came with a win 98 second edition restore cd.

I need it to run w2k so it can be used here in my office.
I will try finding the original cd or maybe try ruling out the hdd or the dvd drive.
