Fresh Installation of XP cannot install drivers..

I just installed XP SP2.

PC is Dell OptiPlex GX280.

I keep getting "No Disk" error. "There is no disk in the drive. Please insert disk into drive."

I tried installing the driver for "ethernet" from the USB and got the above error.
I got the same error when I copy-and-pasted the driver file into desktop and ran it from there directly.

I went straight ahead and installed SP2 without installing any drivers.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

More about fresh installation install drivers
  1. i have installed 3 dell optiplex & it normal as other pc, there wont be any issues for pc that are having drivers from manufactures..

    you may be doing some thing wrong.. (i guess that you will be new to this, so plz get help from anyone who is familiar with OS installations)
  2. I figured it out..
    I was hurrying so much into installing it, that I would enter all area of hard drive availabe for partitioning.

    I installed fresh copy of xp and during the partitioning of drive, picked some portion of it, leaving some space open.

    This thread can be marked as resolved.
