    I am trying to set up XP Pro and I get this message about 30% into the
    set up.

    setup cannot copy the file hid.dll

    What is this file ? Is it necessary? What should I do?

    This was a clean setup, new formatted drive, no programs on it at all,
    no a/virus options were touched in standard bios setting.

    Not really, but I guess install won't complete without it.
    Try (gently) cleaning the CD, &/or use an appropriate cleaner on the CD
    drive itself .. however if it's always the same file, it's probably a
    spot of dust, fingerprint, scratch, etc. on the CD disk. If all else
    fails, borrow another one, or take the original back to where you bought
    it and swap it (or if you have time to spare, MS will swap it for you,
    for some nominal fee, assuming it's a real MS CD).
