    some pc's will not install from a flash drive, but since it is a laptop it should install, depending on where you got the 64bit download it sounds like it was corrupted, try reinstalling again and see if the same issue occurs, or you can first run checkdisk with the /r parameter from the recovery console

    chkdsk c: /r (notice space between k and c and between : and /

    if you used an install disk it should be on it, boot from the install disk and choose R, this opens the recovery console, you will need to choose 1 if you only have a single boot or whichever the number is of your xp partition.

    then once it has shown the windows selection you will type in chkdsk c: /r

    OR

    you can go to start/all programs/accessories/cmd prompt then you would type in the chkdsk c: /r and you will get a msg stating the pc will run checkdisk when restarted, type y for yes press enter and then restart the pc.

    you should run chkdsk twice or until no errors are found and there are 0 kb in bad sectors, you can view the report by looking in event viewer

    start/all programs/administrative tool/event viewer
    or
    start/control panel/administrative tools/event viewer
