USB problems during XP installation

Turning off the USB controller can help when installing Windows XP.

On some computers, during Windows XP installation you can get a blue screen with a message that says that the system can't continue because some driver can't detect some device. Often it happens when the USB controller on some motherboards (like Gigabyte for socket A on 133A chipset) in BIOS is turned on. To get around this trouble, you must turn off all USB controls. Then you can successfully install the operating system. After that, you can turn on USB controller in BIOS and the system will automatically detect the new hardware.
