Is the Windows pirated or the retail version? Also, make sure you have your cd rom to boot first and not your hdd or floppy.

I would recomend, if you have another hdd in there, take it out. just use the one. And do the steps as winter said. make sure in your bios that CD is up for Boot first. then A:

go ahead and hit the Edit button when you make a mistake, and this is a very touchy subject, this 200gb is brand new, so does your bios load up? can you hit f12 or delete to get into bios options, and look up the boot sequence? ill be back have to go work.
