Post 3+ Months Ago

When installing Win2k from CD on a new hard disk I get the following error, "the file isapnp.sys is corrupted setup failed"

I have tried, the same machine but a different hard disk and I get the same error.

I have tried a different installation of WIndows but still get the error.

I've googled it but cant find much.

Can anyone help.

Thanks

Have you got an old sound/network/graphics/ card that uses an ISA slot ?
It sounds like windows is trying to configure that and failing
if you can take the sound or network card out then try that.
removing the graphics card if its that might be a bit trickier though unless you have a handy spare knocking around ;-)

It turned out to be a faulty cd-rom drive. Replaced it and it installed ok.
