First make sure that your BIOS is set to boot from the CD-ROM. Then boot off
the CD and enter the recovery console. You can expand a fresh copy of the
pci.sys off the xp cd and put it in your %systemroot%\system32\drivers
use the syntax below:
expand x:\i386\pci.sys %systemroot%\system32\drivers
let X = your cdrom drive letter
let %systemroot% = your boot drive windows directory
