Do you have sata disks? Go to bios and find a option related to sata or raid, and select "compatible mode" or "ide" depending on your bios. Other way is to have your disks drivers ready and when xp ask to install third party drivers you press F6 or the key that xp wil ask to install this drivers during os instalation.

USB DVD ROM no detected

You need XP service pack 2 or later installed on your notebook. Does your notebook detect other USB drvices, if not your USB port on the PC is gone. If the USB prt is working and you have XP service pack 2 installed then you probably got a bum DVD drive so return it and get another.
