It will load up then go straight to the options where I can choose to do safe mode.
When I disable the hard drive it seems to work best, but an error message comes up saying "Disk Boot Failure, Insert System Disk And Press Enter"
I already had the cd in the drive so i pressed enter and nothering. I also tried the other cd drive..
Also I cannot go into any kind of safe mode. or command promt, b/c it says its missing the system config file.
Sounds to me like your not using a bootable CD, Borrow a friends XP Disk and see if you can boot from it.
Also make sure your CD rom is reconized in BIOS. If not make sure its connected, make sure it has power, or it could be bad..
