If you know your floppy drive is in good shape, then I would get
freshly formated floppies and make a good set of install disks.
Reformat the floppies to remove everything on them and then run
the install program to create your 4-disk W2K install set.
What is the I/O error message?
I/O Errors are generated when there is a problem Inputting (reading) or Outputting (writing) data:
I/O Error 30
Usually happens when trying to install the programs from a diskette.
It means either the disk or the drive is not working correctly.
I/O Error 100 - Disk Read Error

I/O Error 101 - Disk Write Error
"Writing" is when the computer saves information onto the disk.

will cause an error.
