Default Problems installing windows.

Okay, so I'm trying to install Windows XP Home. And I keep getting errors. One was uh "setup failed to install product catalogs..." But the real problem is. I can't use my mouse/keyboard to hit okay on any of these windows for some reason. And it says my mouse and keyboard are unplugged afterwards. And, yes, they're USB. Can anyone help?

do you have some old mouse/keyboard to try?
