I foolishly installed Windows xp pro service pack2. It created a loop on startup because the Fasttrak 100TX2 controller driver installed is incompatible with service pack 2.
Since I could not restore the operating system in safe mode I tried to reinstall Windows xp pro. I get the following error message.
"Setup encountered an error while trying to set system security. The parameter is incorrect. One of the components that windows needs to continue setup could not be installed. Operation cancelled by user.
SXS.DLL: Syntax error in manifest or policy file "D:\1386\asms\60100|POLICY\60100\COMCTL\COMCTL.MAN" on line 6
Current error message:
The file "asms" on Win Pro CD-ROM is needed
Type the path where the file is located.
That's where I am. I would appreciate any help. Thank you.
