With windows XP on my new machine I cant install any software. I used the secondary hard drive from my old machine as the main hd in this new one... would that have anything to do with it??

I get error 1926 if that helps...

Did you switch the jumpers to make it master instead of slave when you changed it out? I'm assuming you did. Otherwise I would think you'd have had other startup issues.

I would be more inclined to think that it's more towards the CD driver's. Did you install any necessary drivers for you CD-ROM device? That seems the most logical reason why you can't install new software.

Or maybe not. I just did some reading on that error and maybe it is a permissions thing.

Just some ideas to play with I guess, since I'm just "guessing" myself at the moment.

You might try some looking here: ... error+1926

I don't have time tonight.
