    I have an xp machine I am doing a repair install on, and during the
    graphical/second part of the repair install (with 34 minutes left), it
    gives me the message "Device install error - Could not load installer
    for .Net". There seems no option to bypass this message and continue
    with the repair install. Any suggestions as to what I can do about it
    to finish the repair install? Thanks.

    Ah, the famous 34 minutes installation error (which Google is fully aware
    of): http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;828267

    Yes, I did to google the problem, but I used the "Device install error"
    message instead of the "34 minutes installation error" and not much
    helpful info came up. Thanks for your suggestion, I will give this a try.

    You need to be a little less restrictive when googling. Placing double
    quotes around your search string is often useful but it can also defy the
    intelligence that Google has placed into the search engine. Try putting the
    following words into a search box, without quotes, to see what I mean:

    Windows installation 34 minutes

    An experienced human would know immediately what this is all about. So does
    Google . . .
