Not really, cuz I don't use that kind of language, but, man, am I tired of trying to load this program! Last week, when I bought the home upgrade for my 466i emachine running ME, I loaded it, figured out what drivers I probably would need (that did NOT show up on the initial compatibility test), then uninstalled XP. No problem. Yesterday, armed with drivers, updates, patches, etc., I sat down to begin my change over from ME to XP in earnest. 16 hours later, I've given up. FIRST, it would get about an hour into the process, then it would stop, saying it could not read or write to the C: drive (!). Said that a virus scanner must be on, and I had to start the install again. Dutifully, I disable Norton Anti-virus (which had not been a problem last week, mind you), and restarted the set-up. An hour later, the install stopped saying it could not read or write to the C: drive, and that a virus scanner must be on. Did this twice again. Finally uninstalled Norton Systemworks (2002!). Tried again. An hour later, install stopped. Said it could not read and write to the C: drive. Oh, maybe it's that Process Viewer program that loaded with NSW. Uninstall. Restart process. XP install stop an hour later. Cannot read or write to C: blah, blah, blah. (I even tried to do the clean install with same results). Finally, I rebooted using my Windows ME boot disk. Ran scandisk. Lots of problems that were not present last week. Fixed problems, did a defrag. Restarted XP install process. NOW, it runs about an hour and 20 minutes and stops again. Some product catalogues have not loaded. Fatal error. Errors 120 and 127. Invalid signature for Windows XP. WHAT?!? Okay, calm down. Deep breathing. Let's go back to clean install. Runs an hour and 20 minutes. Stops. Product catalogues not loaded. Fatal error. Invalid signature. Yada Yada. Ran one more time, before giving up. YES, this is a fresh CD, from the shrink-wrapped box I got from Office Depot last week. Considering an exchange. Maybe just a bad disk, or is there something else I should know. Bottom line, this is killing me, because it installed LAST WEEK, and looked great, but I lost my modem, some functionality and other things, and had to revert back to ME until I could find the updates, drivers, etc. I'm leaving on a five day trip to Calif tomorrow, so I'm going to put it out of my mind until I get back. However, any solutions, etc., would be much appreciated.
