I'm using a WinXP build disk to install XP onto a tower PC. After doing a full NTFS format, and during the installation process, an error pops up saying:
SXS.dll: Syntax error in manifest or policy file
d:\i386\asms\10\MSFT\windows\gdiplus\gdiplus.man on line 4
Error: installation failed D:\i386\asms
Error message: Data error (cyclic redundancy check)
The CD has been used many times before without any issue. Any ideas if this is a disk issue, or hardware issue?
Update: I've confirmed the disc works on another machine, so I will try replacing the CD-ROM drive in the PC in question.
