Properly re-installing Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 from the USB

Hey there! I need some help here.

I have installed Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 from the USB flash drive onto the Compaq TC1000 tablet computer, however...I've ran into a problem to a point where Tablet PC components aren't installed and during Windows XP Professional Setup, I receive this message:

The file Tiptsf.dll on Windows XP Professional CD2 is needed. Type the path where the file is located and then click OK.

Does the tabletpc.cab file exist under the \CMPNENTS directory, btw?

In order to setup up Windows XP TPC, I have to boot from the floppy diskette and use the USB flash drive to set the OS up and the flash drive itself is not bootable.

Right now, I'm in the process of trying to fix this. The PNY Attache 1 GB USB flash drive is 984 MB actual capacity with 147 MB remaining.

In the \CMPNENTS directory on drive G, I have added \NETFX and \TABLETPC sub-directories and added the \I386 sub-directory in the two of the mentioned sub-directories, but the contents inside the directories are totally empty:

\CMPNENTS\NETFX\I386 <-- Files from .NET Framework
\CMPNENTS\TABLETPC\I386 <-- Files for the Tablet PC.

I also have the \COMPAQ and \I386 directories on drive G as well and the files to setup Windows XP Tablet PC Edition are in the \I386 directory by default.

Can you give me a full explanation of what I can do to fix this? The recovery CDs that I got with the Compaq TC1000 do not work at all, btw.

Update: The files are identified as a OEM version of Windows XP SP1 with a datestamp of 2002-08-28. I'm not successfully able to find any files without having to look into the files on the recovery CDs.

ppgrainbow, maybe you could try using some of the methods that have their own section on the forum:

http://www.msfn.org/board/forum/157-install-windows-from-usb/

Setting up XP from the USB is often a bit complex, due to the limitations/pickyness of the install routine, there is at least a related thread (UNfinalized):

http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/131921-installing-xp-tablet-2005-edition-from-usb/

which sounds like being exactly the issue you are having.

But there are also reports of success, at least with the "good ol'" USB multiboot.cmd:

http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/111406-how-to-install-xp-from-usb/

In any case, either wimb or ilko_t are the most expert when it comes to installing XP from USB, so you may want to try their programs and/or continue on the mentioned thread (about files on CD2).
