I don't know much about these things, but from a cursory reading I would
venture to say that there is a chance the hard drive is bad. Perhaps the
sectors where the init files lives is damaged and while you can copy the file
there, it immediately corrupts. Perhaps Windont is seeing it "fine" because
it does not need to open those files in any way.
In a nutshell, a drive that has some bad sectors bang in the wrong place for
Just a guess.
