Specs: Windows xp
Hi, I'm trying to install windows XP pro on Dell Latitude D400 notebook using usb 8gb flash pen drive. When i choose "1st, text mode setup" it hangs on "Setup is inspecting your computer's hardware configuration".... And when i try the DEBUG option i get this "debug boot rdisk 2 partition 4 I/O Error accessing boot sector file multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\BOOTSECT.DOS"
Any help with this would make my daughter stop pestering me to fix it...

Yes I am booting from the usb stick. I have no recovery dvd, plus i have no dvd drive to put any such disk into. I have not come across a partition to restore?
