Failure again and again
Help please.. I have an error code of 0x87FF0004(zeros or O's?)
Have XP Home edition. Computer is trying to update to XP (2). In doing so
I get a message of not being able to copy file advapi32.dll. It says make
sure path is correct (which it is) OR change and insert Windows XP Service
Pack 2 Source Files on desired drive. Can someone tell me what I'm supposed
to do? I was able to find the file easily but as many times as I press retry
I get the same message. I have to keep canceling. I don't understand it as a
beginner.

[They are zeros]

You're trying to update a computer running WinXP SP2 or you're trying to
install SP2?

Assuming you're running WinXP SP2 and are trying to install SP3, see...

How to troubleshoot an unsuccessful installation of WinXP SP3
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/950718

WinXP SP3 - Read all prerequisites for a successful installation
http://msmvps.com/blogs/harrywaldron...tallation.aspx

Free unlimited installation and compatibility support is available for
Windows XP, but only for Service Pack 3 (SP3) and *only until* 14 Apr-09.
Go to http://support.microsoft.com/oas/def...spx?gprid=1173 | select
"Windows XP" then select "Windows XP Service Pack 3"
