I am unable to reinstall XP as it reaches a certain stage and the dreaded blue screen appears with this message.I have a copy of ntdll.dll on a floppy but am unable to upload it onto the system.
I am quite honestly completely out of my depth in this situation.The microsoft reference is not very helpful.I do not have any operating system on my hard drive as it stands.
Thanks for your prompt replies JoeC ,VoG

Remove the memory modules that are installed in your computer, leaving enough RAM for the computer to start and run Windows. Restart the computer, and then run Setup again.

If the error happens again change the RAM and try again.
