as computer tries to boot up, press F8, and go into your bios, and make the computer boot from the hard drive, and then as you do that, before you start the computer again, put in the win cd, and then install it, and from there its pretty self explanitory.

well as ur computer tries to boot, press F8, or F10, or what ever it is, maybe F2, and then go to bios, and then look for boot devices, and from there make the cd rom drive, boot first.

Ya Sure.

On your WinXp Cd, Insert it into your Cd-Drive, Once thats done, press Esc at start up, once thats done, change your bootup disk to your C: drive or what ever one the disk is in, do not boot up with your harddrive, well anyway, it should do it from there.

Must be the most simplest thing to do.
