When you say "bombs out", what happens to the system when this happens?  I had an issue where the system would either hard reset or stop working completely during the file copy of XP, and it turned out to be an overheating issue.

Subject: [HLUG] Weird one.....

I'm still struggling with trying to get Windows XP back on someone's laptop (and no they don't want Ubuntu - I've tried !)

I can quite happily put Ubuntu onto the machine and it will run fine and happy.

However, I cannot get XP back onto it as the install bombs out, usually about 25% of the way through (during file copies)

I've tried a different hard disk just in case Ubuntu was less fussy about drive errors than Windows, but to no avail....

I'm a little stumped to say the least.

Anyone experienced anything similar and able to offer advice ?
