Press F2 to enter BIOS setup whether you get the Dell screen or not. Might work.

OK, finally got to the BIOS by holding down f2 during the boot. Moved the hard drive to the bottom of the list and moved the USB peripherals to the top of the boot list. Worked like a charm.

XP is reinstalled and the computer is much cleaner and faster than ever. No bloat that's for sure.
