OK here's the story. I went to install a Windows 2003 Server 3-in-1 I got from Sharereactor/eMule, and during install (when I had gotten to the GUI part of the installation) it asked for NT5INF.CAT. I figured since it was a 3-in-1 it might not be in the root directory. So I put it in my Laptop (where I'm posting from) and searched for it. There was no such file.
So I said F it, I'm going back to Windows XP. By the way, the one with integrated Sp1 that I downloaded does not boot. But I'll bitch about that later. No, I'm just installing the WinXP Pro Corp.
So I figured, fuck a full ntfs format on my 80gb; I just did that, and instead opted for the quick format. Install got to the same point and gave me the same error 2003 had given me! And I've installed from this WinXP CD at least five times in the past (also I am no n00b to clean format/installing) and did not get this error until ANOTHER Windows CD did it to me. But I formatted since then!
I Google'd it and found Win2k users were having this problem. But nothing on Windows XP.
If the file exists, can someone email it to me at email@example.com so that I may add it to the ISO I have and burn it again, to shut that error message up?
