Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

i think, just you extracting Sysoc.inf file from Windows XP
Insert the Windows XP CD in the drive.

Click Start/Run and type CMD

In the Command Prompt, type this line:

expand X:\i386\sysoc.in_ -r c:\windows\inf

Where X:\ is your CD-ROM drive letter. The above command assumes Windows is installed in C:\ drive. If not, change the drive letter / Path accordingly.

expand H:\i386\sysoc.in_ -r g:\windows\inf

after you didn’t get the error
