I was booting up my cousins PC and installing Windows XP! When I did all the successful methods in booting I got to a screen where it asked in which drive I should install the Operating System. So I get my USB situated there instead if my hard disk and when I try to install or delete the USB it says"Cannot delete/install OS" because this has setup files and I can see a line written in the top of the screen"152678mb at 0 at atapi" something like that and below it's written cannot check disk or something please help I think the hard disk issue I plugged the cable of hard disk and inserted again but no result, Thanks

If I understand your #1 correctly you were trying to install XP and you had a USB drive connected at the same time. Somehow, when asked where you wanted the OS installed, you managed to get the installation on the USB instead of the hard drive.

 

To fix the problem with the USB, connect it to a different computer and format it, this will wipe any data on it.

 

If I have misunderstood your first post, and you were trying to install XP from the USB drive then you need to go into the BIOS to make sure that USB is at the top of the boot prority list. Then plug in the USB drive and start the computer and it should boot from the USB drive and then go on into the installation procedure.

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !
