Error when installing AMD Drivers

I get this error message when I attempt to install the AMD Driver; "C:\boot.ini could not be opened". Then when I reboot, my bios gives an F5 error and I have to power down and turn back on.

System is in Sig......have WinxP SP2 installed. Downloaded the AMD drivers form the AMD website and when I try to install them I get the error above. That is all there is........ just wondering why and what that error means. Ive tried redownloading the file in case it was just a bad download.

I dont have an X2, but dont you need to install XP with multiCPU enabled from the very start?

Is this a fresh install?

Or are you trying to update drivers?
