Bad news about the hard drive

It is so sad to say in this rainy, windy and dark afternoon, the hard drive is gone forever. The big question mark is how I am going to tell my friend about this bad news.

About that hard drive

A colleague at work tried a different way to get the hard drive working, unfortunately the hard drive crashed during the reformatting process. It seems to me that the laptop will end up in a trash bin which is not what I expected at all. My last resource is to call another friend who runs a computer shop and ask for his help. My goodness, it is so embarrassing!

Reformating and installing from Windows XP CD

On the weekend, a friend asked me to reformat a hard drive by deleting everything on that hard drive and install a fresh copy of Windows XP from the CD. The laptop, Windows XP and all devices are working OK.

After the laptop successfully boots from the CD, a message appears on the screen saying that "INF file txtsetup.sif is corrupt or missing, status 32768. Setup cannot continue, press any key to exit". I then google it but could not find a right answer to show me how to fix this problem.

Can you help? Thanks in advance.

Creating a new blog site

This blog site is created for one of my IT assessment. What can I say today? Not very much. I am interested in computer programming but unable to allocate enough time to do coding.
