I have a dell dimension 4000 and upgraded the hard drive to 160 gb hitachi.
Xp Home reinstalled from the oem discs with no problems
upgraded to sp1a with no problems
when upgrading to sp2 or 3 the computer would only boot in safe mode.
After much googling i decided to go down the route of making a slipstream disc with sp2 using nlite.
I was able to create the disc with no problems and when inserted in the dell the installation begins.
After loading various drivers and getting so far, the message 'the file usbehci.sys is corrupted press any key to continue' and i cannot proceed with the installation.
i have been googling this for several days now and none of the forums offered any solution though it seems many have had this problem.
If anyone here can help with this situation or has found the definitive solution it would be very much appreciated.
thank you in advance for all and any replies.
