You will usually encountered this kind of fatal error message when you are trying to install an operating system such as Windows XP. To resolve this issue of yours, you can simply  try to install the Windows XP again ,  but if this fatal error still occurs it might be because one of the file in your CD-ROM, particularly  the file is corrupted or damaged.

Look at your CD-ROM if there is any scratches on it.  That might be the caused of the damages in the file. Get a different CD-Rom of  Windows XP then try to install it again. Or simply burn a new CD then install it.

This problem may also occur if you run Sysprep on Windows XP and use the -nosidgen switch.
To resolve this, re-image, and make sure the image is built on a fresh install of Windows XP. If this problem occurs when you use -nosidgen, build the image of Windows XP with Service Pack 1 Windows XP with Service Pack 1 includes an update that resolves the problem.
