Unfortunately, I wouldn't be able to help you with that issue.
I used Windows DVD's to install Windows on my d530's.
I didn't even know you could boot from a USB flash drive on those.
All I can tell you that there are no special drivers needed to install Windows 2000, XP, Vista or W7 32 bit on the d530.
The drive controller can only be set to IDE mode, which all versions of Windows recognize.
You are not trying to install W7 64 bit, are you? You cannot run any 64 bit OS on that PC.
None of the processors support 64 bit operating systems.

That is correct.
4 x 1 GB.
Unfortunately, I wouldn't be able to help you with that, because it has been years since I put memory in that model.
All I know is the best you can install in there is PC3200, non-ECC, unbuffered.
I think it is going to cost a lot of money too, since probably very few memory PC3200 memory chips are made today.
You might want to look on eBay for used but tested and working PC3200 memory modules.

Are these versions of BIOS different
If you go to this Hp support site and select Windows XP (32 bit)
You will find
- 786B BIOS Family Processor Microcode and
- HP Compaq Business Desktop system BIOS(768B2 BIOS)
The BIOS currently in my PC is 786B2 v1.11 which is listed as a Previous version under the second one above
If I am trying to update the BIOS due to the microcode update error should I choose the first or the second?
