    I am running through the repair on one of our computers. I put in the XP setup CD, and went through the steps and selected the Windows installation and then repair that installation. It gets through loading the files and all, and when it boots into the installation, after a few minutes I get an error box saying:

    Windows was unable to initialize network installation components. The specific error code is 2.

    When I click ok and view the setup log, it has an entry:

    Error:
    Setup could not register the OLE control because of the following error:
    LoadLibrary returned error 193(c1)

    So do I have a bad CD, or what do you think is wrong? I tried two XP cds (even though they were burned from the same original disk)

    Do you have the original? If not you are installing an illegal operating system and we unfortunately can not help you here. Or at least I will not.

    They were burned from a legit disk. I don't have that disk because we have a corporate license so that key is used all over the company.

    I think the burn is likely cause -- can you try burning one at a slower write speed?

    Else try a different CD or DVD drive to install from if possible.

    And the fact that you are copying from a "legit" disk, does not mean that that disk is good for burning.

    I hear ya. I was just saying that in response to the question of if I am doing an illegal install, which I am not. I'll try to track down another copy.

    My question is, would these errors be more associated with a read error from the CD, or a write error to the HDD?
