    Damn i'm about to throw my computer and xp disk away..i am sooooooo angry at the problem that won't let me install XP

    I'm trying to dual boot my win 98 se comp by putting xp on my e drive,something i did two days ago for a friend of mine which worked like a charm.

    but today it doesn't wanna play with me..each and every time i try to install all goes well until 6 minutes are remaining and it just stops dead...nothing .

    has any one else had this problem ?

    if so whats the cure ?

    got it sussed at last after only 7 attempts...............

    on the first time i got it running it said there was a few dll's missing and when xp started media player was missing along with msconfig and help files,so i repaired it using the advanced installation and now it "seems" ok..............
