I'm guessing the Windows setup program is looking for the Intel video driver for the display. You can either skip the driver installation install it after Windows has finished installing, or you can see if you can find the file it's looking for in the previous XP installation in C:\Windows\system32 or C:\Windows\system32\drivers
(Assuming C: is where the copy of XP Home was residing.)

Try looking for the file it's asking for in the places I mentioned, or if you have restore disks try looking for the file on there.
Particularly, if this is a Dell machine and you have the disks for it, you may have a disk marked Driver CD that should have the appropriate files on it.
