    Did you disconnect all external peripherals except the monitor, keyboard and mouse? . . and be sure those are not USB, or wireless. Any internal USB card should also be removed.

    Do you have a dvd drive? You can try to copy the file from your xp cd and burn it to a dvd and try that. I just read where someone from another forum had the same problem. Burning a copy to a cd did not work, but on a DVD it did. Or if you don't have a dvd drive or burner, you could try a cd.
    Good luck!
