Error during Copying Files :

filename is missing or problem while copying files :

During this error,you will see a window asking:To continue press Enter or skip this file or cancel Setup.
  • Avoid skipping the file as windows will not work properly after installation or will not install.
  • Make sure that Disc is not scratched or dirty.Clean the Disc with soft cloth.
  • Try to Press Enter ( only 3-4 times ).If setup does not continue..
  • Replace the Setup Disc i.e. Windows installation CD
  • If it also not work, Replace the CD/DVD Drive. Yeah! It`s not easy for individual or home users to arrange new Drive  but it`s also a way to setup windows using same CD ( If CD is in good  condition)

Blue Screen Error :

This is usually caused by hardware or software that is incompatible with Windows.This error have no alternate solution what i know, you have just two options : Either Wait or Restart Computer .

  • Waiting for Setup to continue is beneficial only if light of computer is blinking that blinks when hard disk is running.
  • If it is not so....Restart Computer.
  • If error continues, Try to remove hardwares that are not in use say floppy drive,other CD/DVD drive, or hardware that is not compatible with windows.

Fatal Error :

I got blue screen and fatal error many of times during windows installation ( IInd Phase ).

To avoid this error what i did ,I just eject the disc and insert again.

CD/DVD Drive stops reading installation Disc : 

  •  Just Eject and again Insert the disc.
  • If it still not read, Replace the disc or drive.
The above common errors are those which i had faced many times and what i used to do to solve them.
