PRobs with Win XP RC2 install



Kay… got a a huge prob here :frowning:

When I try to install XP RC2 as a clean install I get the following message:

“An error has been encountered that prevents Setup from continuing.
One of the components that Windows needs to continue Setup could not be
Manifest Parse Error : Invalid at the top level of the document.
press OK to view the Setup log file.”

When I press ok this is what I get:

“Error: SXS.DLL” Syntax error in manifest or policy file"
D:\I386\asms\6000\MSFT\Windows\Common\Controls\" on line 0.

Error: Installation Failed: D:\I386\asms. Error Message: Invalid at the top
of the document.

I get this error all the time… tried to download again and writing again … same prob

Somebody had this prob and solved it? Please help me… I’d really like to test WinXP :slight_smile:

Thankz :wink:


Kay, solved the prob… extracted the ISO with isobuster and burned it … begun install with bootable cd and after the reboot continued with the other cd… It Works !!! :slight_smile:





It looks like that RC2 had problems with install. I tried to install it on my PC and it said that it cannot copy progman.exe. I just skiped the file and install went on and I had no problems with install.
When installing on another computer with the same CD it didn’t give me an error about progman.exe but about another file.
Strange eh…
