i have a HP compaq computer, had OpenBSD on it and i got rid of it, fdisked and removed all partitions, tried to install windows and it says a file on the disk is corrupt...but its never the same problem twice...you reboot it and it might go alittle bit farther and say another file is corrupt...the disk is good i installed windows using it on another computer same day, the hard drive is not bad as far as i can tell as i have switched harddrives out with a known working one and tried to install windows and get the same type error messages when installing windows. so any advice would be great.

a friend of mine used to get same errors with 3 or more different windows cds! (it started to happen all of a sudden!) even with a cd I handed him off. i guess it's a cd drive issue or motherboard IDE controller for that cd drive or a bad cable. i bet file names are different each time.

trial and error is the best solution i can give you mate....
see what computer part is the pest..i think it might be the motherboard in the end.. u can try to install windows by installing another CD drive and installing windows using that...
