Im trying to get XP to install from a USB stick and following the information from http://www.vandomburg.net/installing-windows-xp-from-usb/

Now, all has gone well except when I try to boot from the USB drive, I get the following error :

INF file txtsetup.sif is corrupt or missing, status 18.
Setup cannot continue. Press any key to exit.

Looking up that error, and a few people reckon its the format of the drive thats the issue, so Ive formatted it to FAT16 and FAT32 but same error both times.

Has anyone done this before, if so what site/info did you use to complete it ?

TIA

I tried forever trying to do this to install XP on my eee, following multiple guides but I just coudn't get it to work

I wasted about a day on it, in the end I bought an external dvd reader!

I've done it, but had to use a formatting utility from HP for the usb stick...HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool. Free download

I think I used this guide:
