Default Reinstall Windows XP on 2003 Dell 4700 Dimension

Having some issues reinstall Windows XP on an old computer.

1. CD Drive does work anymore
2. Used Rufus to create a USB boot with the Windows CD
3. Boots to USB and tries to setup windows on the first screen
4. Blue screen of death
5. BIOS maintenance gives Keyboard Error

Any ideas.

If you really insist on wasting time on that thing, i'll recommend using some diagnosis tools to check if the RAM and harddrive are working correctly. Ultimate boot is my go to package of tools.
I personally use ViVARD to scan for sector errors on HDD's and memtest 86 for RAM issues.

Thanks for the help. I just want it for the old ports. I am going to use it as the garage computer.
