I suspected a problem with the file installation and formatted the USB and re-did the file conversion with WinSetupFromUSB and got much further before running into another problem..
Once the GRUB menu items appear and process in their order, the GRUB screen exits and I'm in a black DOS screen with:
'Second part of XP Professional setup from hd 0 part 1' highlighted with other suggested hd #'s and part #'s to fix HAL.DLL/NTOSKRNL.EXE not found errors...
Pressing Enter gives me an error message that states:
'Windows could not start because of a computer disk hardware configuration problem.
Could not read from the selected boot disk. Check boot path and disk hardware.
Please check the Windows documentation about hardware disk configuration and your hardware reference manuals for additional information.'
I'm ASSUMING again that I may not have the files in the right .iso configuration is the only thing that I can come up with.....
