I am trying to give an old desktop I recently acquired a fresh install of Windows XP Home. I have and OEM install disk, and have tried to use it but it will not complete the installation process. While copying the files, a message "cannot copy file" appears starting with the file "wpa.dbl" and reappears for every file after it. I figured it could be damage to the drive, so I switched it and nothing happened. So I thought it was the disk, so I borrowed from a friend a branded re-installation disk and the same thing happened with the same file. I'm starting to think I 'm missing a large piece of information somewhere. I've done this before and never had this problem. I've used that OEM disk before without any problems. I know that wpa.dbl is involved in licensing, but my understanding was that it only took to effect after installation. Any help with this would be appreciated.
