I installed a new motherboard and processor in a neighbor's PC, and transferred her old hard drive over to it. Started installing the drivers for the new mobo components, and something went wrong during the video driver install. Now in Normal mode, the splash screen comes up, then the display goes blank. I can boot in Safe Mode and get the 640x480x16 display, and Windows says that is what will be used on the next start. But instead I get the blank display.
In Safe Mode, of course, I don't have access to the CD-ROM drive, so I could transfer the entire driver CD's contents to the hard drive and run the video install in Safe Mode. I used a boot disk to start the PC with CD-ROM support, but now I can't transfer the CD's contents. Every combo of Copy and Xcopy I can think of results in Invalid File Name errors. Any suggestions gratefully appreciated.
