    ive reformatted my computer and when i try and install windows it goes all the way to 99% then says ntldr.exe cannot be copied, the retry option doesnt work so i try to skip the file...but then i run into another 10-15 files that cant be copied (installed) either....i skip all of them and at the end i get a message saying i cant go any further ( i know my description is kinda sketchy...if youve heard of this happening b4 at all lemme know and i'll give better details..)


    cliffs: cant get ntldr.exe and a bunch of other windows files to install..

    either bad memory, cpu, or cd.

    Run memtest86.

    Is the CD legit or pirated? If its legit, then its gotta be your hardware. If its pirated.... pirate another version.

    It's a bad CD. If your computer were malfunctioning, it would choke on different files each time you try to install.

    I'm not a fan of piracy either, but I figure I'll buy Vista and limp along until then.
