Default INF file txtsetup.sif is corrupt or missing

I deleted a lot of stuff of my hard drive to make my computer fresh again.
But now it won't boot up from the hard drive. And when I insert the windows xp pro CD to reinstall windows it starts loading fine and than the following error message come up

"INF file txtsetup.sif is corrupt or missing , status 47872.
Setup annot continue, Press any key to exit."

So what could I do to fix this error message so that I could reinstall windows. Oh yeah and I am not trying to recover files or anything. Actually I want to make it 100% new

And I don't think I would need the boot up disks because it loads fine until i get that error message, or woud I need it?

Are you choosing to format before you install Windows? If not, give that a try.

the problem is that it doesn't even get that far, before the error comes

1. Go to and download whatever bootdisk you need, and extract it to a 3.5" floppy.

2. Boot from the floppy disk on the broken computer.

3. Wait for the stuff to load and install Windows.

FYI: Windows XP is 4-floppies worth.
