hey guys I am trying to install windows 7 on my dell insperon 1720 but the DVD drive doesn't work so I am using a USB stick (4GB) I am trying to install windows XP (there is no OS on it right now) the system came with Vista (lol) I made a bootable copy of the xp disk on the USB drive but when I am at the blue screen after it loads some of the installer things I get a error

STOP: 0x0000007E (0xc0000005,0xF748E0BF,0xF78DA208,0xF78D9F0

pci.sys - Adress F748E0BD base at F7487000, DateStamp 3b7d855c

I have looked up the error on MS;en-us;330182 but I have 120 GB HDD (formatted) 2 GB of working Ram etc... What could be my problem?
