I want to reinstall Windows XP. During the CD boot setup, I did a quick format of NTFS, then the install proceeded. Then I encountered the error:Windows XP. Error: sxs.dll: syntax error in manifest or policy file "D:\I386\asms\6000\MSFT\VCRTL\VCRTL.MAN" on line 11. Installation failed: D:\I386\asms. Error message: incorrect function.
This CD has successfully rebuilt another PC - we have a corporate license.
Does this indicate a CD-ROM hardware issue?
