I bought a new HD and tried to install XP pro, It formatted fine then,
When it Gets to the "Copying files for installation" part
These Messages Keep Popping Up:
Windows Cannot Copy This File: xxxxx.xxxx
Then it gives options to retry or skip

It does this for every other file or so

In DiskPart,delete the partition,create one,then press Esc Key,then type:
FORMAT C: /FS:ntfs When thru,type:EXIT Let xp restart,reboot to xp cd,

Most file copy issues are due to a problem with either the CD
drive or the CD itself. Take a look for scratches or smudges on
the CD. Is this an original installation CD or a copy? Avoid
using copied CD's. You might also consider changing the CD drive.
Finally, since this is a new HD, recheck your cable connections.

Good luck

Just After i had posted this I found out that it was Ram Incompatibility
