Question about Dell OptiPlex 330 Desktop Desktop Computer
So, where did you get the Windows XP drivers for the controller? Are you sure that they are XP compatible?
Is the USB floppy even being recognized and read by the setup program?
The Windows Setup program only supports a handful of USB drives for F6 driver installation method, that is explained here:
A connected USB floppy disk drive does not work when you press F6 to install mass storage drivers during the Windows XP installation process
Adding the standard Microsoft USB storage drivers to the txtsetup.oem file on the floppy diskette usually resolves this problem, see here: http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/CS-026606.htm
Adding the USB floppy's vendor ID should also fix the problem, see here for an example:
None of my business but why not use Windows 7 on the new laptop, instead of going through all this trouble installing an operating system that is 10 years old and that is living on borrowed time?
