Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Reinstalling Windows XP Home Edition on Gateway 500XL

\015 First off, I have the reinstalling CD set that came with the computer. I have already cleared out my harddrive and formated with NTFS but then at about 23% of the setup, it said that " 'driver.cab' couldn't be found and to insert the correct cd" so inserted all of them (1 at a time) and nothing yet.\015\012\015\012I was then told by my mom that she had the computer fixed by Gateway back in 2005; and their techs used different CDs to reboot & reinstall Windows XP Home Edition.\015\012\015\012I am willing to start completely over since I got frustrated and pressed the escape button to skip part of the install; which I know is bad.\015\012\015\012Thank You in advance\015\012\015\012Error messageWINDOWSSYSTEM32CONFIGSYSTEM CANNOT BE RECOVERED.

Answers :

It is all to do with the installation. You will need to install windows freshly. the disks you are using sound like they are recovery disks but if you have formatted your harddrive then they may not work.
