Get an updated windows installer, now if windows installer wont install
windows installer, then you have no choice but to re-install windows to
get windows installer installing again.

I had that issue in qemu, think I read that they have issues with win2k,
or was that XP? Its in their FAQ anyway. Check the event log for errors,
stick em into eventid.net, and I bet its complaining about not having
enough space on the C: drive, even though windows does in fact, have
enough space. Dont remember the ID though.
Anyone running the accellerated qemu? The binary (spit) one?
