I have an optiplex gx270 and I'm trying to reload xp. Setup can not complete because of bsod error portcls.sys. Any ideas?

A search of the forums seems to indicate that "portcls.sys" is related to your system's audio. One suggestion......  if your using the integrated sound on the motherboard then I would try disabling it in the BIOS so that the Windows installation could continue.  After Windows is installed you could then re-enable it in the BIOS and deal with the driver issue then.  On your model the Sound option is found under the Integrated Devices heading of the BIOS Setup.
