Hellow Daniweb !!
I have a Dell Inspiron 5150 laptop that has given me fits when it comes to trying to install a Windows XP Home Edition on a new hard drive. I have the original installation disc that came with the computer. I have a new hard drive which is a Hitachi TravelStar , 60GB, 7,200 RPM. I tried AGAIN to install an installation on the hard drive and this time, during setup, it says :
The file diskcopy.dll was not copied correctly. Other times it would say that other " FILES WERN'T COPIED CORRECTLY". It is different everytime. One time , I got the hard drive to take an installation but it didn't last long and it just started BLUE SCREENING. I wiped the hard drive clean with a program called Dariks Boot and Nuke, just to make sure that the hard drive was clean and now it just says " The file diskcopy.dll was not copied correctly". I tried a different cd/dvd player and that hasn't made any difference either.
The reason I am using a new hard drive is to upgrade the laptop to a faster hard drive.
I'm lost. I've never in 5 years of working on computers had this many problems with an installation.
