error VM Windows XP


I am using Sun VM Virtualbox and trying to install Windows Xp as a virtual machine. It gets about 2/3 the way through: to the "installing Windows" step. It goes for about 2 minutes and then this error message lights up:

Code:

Error:SXS.Dll: Syntax error in manifest or policy file "D:\386\asms\1000\MSFT\WINDOWS\GDIPLUS\GDIPLUS.MAN" on line 4.

Error:Installation Failed: D:\I386\asms. Error Message: The request could not be preformed because of an I/O device error.

Fatal Error: One of the components that Windows needs to continue setup could not be installed.

(end)

Does anyone know what it means or how to fix it? Please and thank you!
