Hey guys,

Im having a problem, im trying to install WinXP, but when I put the disc in the drive it doesnt boot it. Ive changed all the BIOS options and made it so it boots the CD drives first, but it doesnt read the CD or something. Anybody know whats up?

Also I have WinXP installed (im trying to re-install) and after installing XP it wants a password to log on? whats up with that?

well to boot to the cd..you actually have to press something...it won't just boot to the cd..you should see somewhere on the screen s omething that says "press any key to boot to cd"...so..press any key...if you're not seeing that message start pressing a button once a second during boot up
