Buy or borrow a usb cd drive and use it. It would be much easier.

Otherwise you'd need some bootable media such as a barts PE usb. It has a way to install xp from files. Files could be based on any network accessible point.

Othewise you have to fool with pxe or better still gpxe and boot to some PE and then access files via http, ftp, tftp, iscsi or any other supported media.

I moved this to XP as it is a question about installing XP.

is that notebook supported under xp? Sounds like during the install you didn't install notebook specific drivers and the xp generic ones are not working.

Check with the manufacturer 0f the notebook to see if XP is supported and if drivers are available. You cannot assume that the drivers supplied with XP will work.

One problem is the driver situation.

Do you have a store bought retail full version of XP?

Second may be that the system may never have been factory tested on XP. While that seems odd, you'd be surprised how easy it is to make a board that fails. I used to work at a board factory and when a new OS came out plenty of boards that passed on the old OS would not work on the new OS.
