I install to a clean hard drive, 30 gig Quantum fireball. I run fdisk to remove previous partitions, then create a new partition through win 2k setup, and ive tried both fat32 and ntfs, and both with both of them, it gets done formatting, then starts copying the files, and when it gets to, it sits there doing nothing for a while, then gives me an error message, saying there was an error in "MEMORY_MANAGEMENT" and i have to restart. i have a second hard drive and a second motherboard, ive switched these all around but nothing works, the same thing always happens. Then when i try to install win xp, it just cant completely copy many of the files, i have to skip them.

Are these store bought cd's or copies of cd's? If they are copies, sometimes the data stored on the CDR gets "stuffed" during the copy process, especially with WINXP. The only fix with win2k is to copy the I386 folder from the cd directly to hard drive and intall from there. With XP you will need to burn a new CD with a corrected CONTROL.MAN XML file (you can find it on many news groups). I tried many times to load XP after copying the contents of the entire cd (store bought) to the hard drive only to find that even this copy process somehow changes the CONTROL.MAN and fills it with zeros. I like installing direct from the hard drive because CDROMS often spin down and the process takes twice as long.

From DOS c:\ MD I386. Change your drive to the cdrom, D:\ or whatever your drive letter assignment is, change to the directory I386 then Copy *.* c:\I386. If you are not familiar with DOS commands. Look at

It says "COPY does not support wildcards or directory copies"

I use command line copy command all the time in Dos, You can copy complete contents from one directory within that directory to another directory with copy *.* \(name of directory). But you have to make the directory first with the command MD and you can not copy the contents of a directory to itself.
