Did you change both of the possible keys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsCurrentVersion\Setup\SourcePath

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SourcePath

Didn't know you had to do NT. I will try that once the laptop has restarted. Once it asks for the CD you're stuck.

"prevent 99% of request for the the XP CD"
Looks like you are the 1%.... :(

Well that's life, *sympathetic sigh*
just the sort of thing that happens to me also.

...NT\CurrentVersion\SourcePath or Setup\SourcePath, no entries. Should I put one in?

  Graham. 16:19 17 Feb 07

I've added the entry in WindowsNT. Still asking for the CD. This is not an exercise, Internet Explorer keeps shutting down and PC World are baffled.

I'm going to copy the I386 to CD...

That didn'y work, 'Wrong CD'. I have a feeling this new laptop is a lemon.

Were you not provided with a CD with XP on? (or a recovery disk CD that will also have the I386 folder on)

Did you click on "windows" or just scan the list that opened under windows in the registry.

Sorry talking bollocks again, must get off this bloody medication.
