Hi, haha, don't roll yr eyes yet. I've done what you mention so many times that I've lost count I always get either "hal.dll missing" or the other common message when the 2nd part of installation is supposed to start. I just can't get past these and I've followed the solutions on this forum but they're not working for me (changing bios values, switching usb sticks...). I've tried with .iso's of XP SP1, 2 and 3... nothing. That's why I thought maybe I needed the Dell drivers that are on the other CD. I can install ubuntu, though, so I'm sure it's not a hardware failure.
