txtsetup.sif is invalid error :(
I get this error when booting up from an xp pro disc rite after it sais it's analyzing hardware it shows this..

exact error message- line 4813 of the inf file \i386\txtsetup.sif is invalid setup cannot continue.

I looked in that txtsetup.sif file in the xp cd and the line looks like lwusbhid.sys = 1,,,,,,,,3,3

but above it shows the inf file lwusbhid.inf = 1,,,,,,,20,0,0 just that one is on a different line.. 4812

.. please if you could give me advice lol.. on the internet all it tells me is it's a cd issue, cables, hd, memmory etc. but I have no clue as im a hardware noob :X the only thing I checked really is it's not a cd rom drive shaking issue or one with the hard drives since I disconnected that

This is usually caused booting from a CD slipstreamed with a different service pack than the original installation CD. Do you have the original installation CD?

I have the original and two other different cds and they all say the same thing.. I even tried taking that line out of the file and burn it and it still asks me about it

Is this an IBM laptop by chance? Even if it isn't, this might be related:

Bottom line, you may want to try updating your BIOS.

Edit:

One other thought, seeing as the line is relating to an error with USB HID, you could also try disconnect any USB input devices -- joystick, "unusual" mice or keyboards, etc.
