Default xp pro install problem on mini 9 - 07-18-2009, 01:28 AM

I am trying to install XP Pro on my Mini 9, (8gb ssd, 2gb ram) installing from CD, all's well until about 47% when it starts telling me it couldn't copy various files, tourw.exe, usrcontra.dll, usroina.dll, usdpa.dll etc... so I retry each one, still nothing so I try to continue without installing those files, it jumps to the next and the messages continues. After about 10 of these I get new blue screen saying problem detected wtfs.sys, page fault in now paged area, and not able to continue. I restarted and got up to 47% and same problem occurs. Any ideas on what may be wrong.
