Boot it up with the Windows CD in -> Select Boot from Disk when it comes up -> Select Install Windows Anyway -> It'll show your Drives -> Delete all the partitions -> Then Create whatever Partitions you want -> Select A drive to Install Windows on -> It does almost all the rest for you, and if it doesn't its easily marked.

Thats was well as I can do it, hope it works out.

You have to go into your bios and tell it to boot from a cd in the first choice.

Yeah, what Gary said - I'm just not used to that cause most of my computers check all the drives. But yeah; just go into BIOs and make CD top.

I don't know what to do and anyhelp would be greatly appreciated.
This was as you said "any help"
Is pressing ctrl alt del a hobby of yours ? Let things do their thing.
Whats the point ?
That wasn't any help ? Then you really do need help too.not pc.
