Having problems with your Toshiba P25-S670 Notebook ?

Trying to install windows xp pro

\015 I get to 61% and it tells me it cannot copy oembios.bin. I figured that it was the disk i was using and tried several others. The same discs work in other computers just fine. The computer I am using is a custom built one. I belive the motherboard is compaq. At least that is what comes up on the screen.\015

  1. extract oembios.bin from the i386 folder on the cd and copy to the program folder of the old OS (upgrade only).
Could be one of problems:

You need to update the BIOS

The cdrom that you're using is "picky"

The disc is dirty / damaged.

However, i've run into problems with the RAM causing this. Try taking out as much as you can (leave one stick in) and see if it installs.
