does it happen repeatedly? Just reset your BIOS and see..

It could be some issue with the XP CD you used. Try another CD and check.

As the dvd drive of my pc had died i had no option of installing xp via a cd.So i downloaded a copy of win xp professional sp3 from  isohunt on my galaxy tab and copied it on the pen drive,made it bootable and installed it via pen drive.The formatting and copying happened flawlessly....but as it started installing win xp this blue screen stop error occured and happens over and over again at the same point.Tried few tweaks but no use:'(

Same thing happened with me a few times. It could be either that the copy itself is corrupted or some error occurred while its transition to bootable USB. If you have any friends who would help, you can borrow another XP CD and try. You can use a Live Linux CD and use your system for each session even without OS and hard disc.
