Error Setup cannot load the keyboard layout file kbdus.dll

  • I'm trying to reload Windows XP.  I have the XP disk sent to me by Dell.  When I try to reload, I get the error "Setup cannot load the keyboard layout file kbdus.dll".  I have searched the forum, and have not found any solutions which work.  Does anyone have any ideas?
  • Did you have windows 2000 and now trying to upgrade to xp? Even if  you did not, read this forum post and see if anyting pertains to you situation.

    Dell 2350, 768mb ram, 60gig hardrive,Maxtor 250gig external drive, zone alarm free version 7.0.483, Avg 7.5, IE 6

  • No, I'm reloading XP on a machine which already has XP.  I've read the post you're referring to, and it was not helpful.  I'm in a little bit of a hurry, so I think I'm going to go ahead and pay a tech to reload my machine for me.  Thanks for the help.
  • Boot from the XP disc and choose where to install then just follow the installation.
