Then you should be able to. Did your USB install of Windows XP have SP3 slipstreamed into it? If so, can you recreate and retry without it? If not, can you recreate / retry with it?

Slipstream means you embed it with the downloaded ISO so that it gets included during the installation process. This way you do not have to download things like the Service Pack and go through the entire install process again. Since it was included with the download, it should not be an issue. Where did you get the ISO from anyway?

It's possible that you can't just install using any Windows XP install. It may be that you need the reinstall disk for your model Acer. I recall sometimes, the first thing you were supposed to do was create a back up disk for just such an occasion. While they probably don't support your model laptop any longer, you might want to consider contacting Acer Support.
