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. http://www2.geek.com/discus/messages/24/11938.html?1122501627

  • 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.
