WinXP Installation - BSOD - 0x0000000A - Optiplex 780

Hi all. My Optiplex 780 had Windows 7 Pro on it, and I needed to step down to Windows XP.  On installation, I get to the Windows XP Install page, then about half way into the device drivers loading, I get this BSOD error. I've tried to go into BIOS and tweak a few settings, but to no avail.  I've taken all of my cards out and still am having the same issue. The system was working with no issues when it had Win7 on it, so I don't think that there are any memory issues.

Any thoughts how I can go about getting past this error?  I've seen some posts about loading additional Dell drivers, but not really sure how to do that.  My Optiplex does not have a floppy drive.
