I realize that I probably missed a step but, after finally deciding to do a reformat and fresh install of WinXP I'm having a few issues.
I followed the steps layed out in this handy article
layed out by Chromite. But now I keep getting error messages left and right when I try to install any programs from a CD. (and a couple other download errors as well)
I keep getting an *MD5 error* message when trying to install programs from certain game disks such as BF2 and NWN. I have absolutely no idea what this is. It seems like my CD/RW drive is unable to read certain files on the disk or something and keeps asking if I want to retry to install the file.
I booted directly from my WinXP CD for the reformat and deleted all the partitions and used NTFS for reinstall. Then I downloaded my MB Drivers
the graphics card drivers
and the sound Drivers.
The I installed firewall, virus scan, ad-aware yadda yadda yadda. pretty much word for word in the article.
Am i missing something? I'm thinking I might have passed up a driver somewhere. Any help would be great. thanks.
EDIT: Forgive me if any, or all of this is unintelligable. I have never had to do a reformat before and this is all new to me
