XP Pro Install - Missing usbehci.sys

Post by Chmaanta »

Hi all,
I'm trying to install XP Pro from a USB drive using the software on the web. Things looks promising, but while still going through part 1 of the install I get a message saying "Cannot find usbehci.sys" and it stops installing.

I'm using XP Pro before Service Pack 1.

The error seems to be related to USB 2.0 and XP Pro, pre service pack 1 didn't work with 2.0.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Thank you.

UPDATE: The fix was to copy the missing file from a friend's XP installation disk into the "bin" folder where all the other .sys files are kept. Once I did that everything progressed smoothly.
