I'm sure it has been covered already, so maybe I can be pointed to the instructions.
I want to Reformat/Reinstall Windows XP on a Gateway solo 9550. I've tried following two sets of Instructions from Gateway, and neither has worked. I have the Drivers/Apps/and OS CD's. PC will not boot from these, although Bios is set to boot from CD, always boots to XP.

I believe this was a SP1 computer. The Op Sys CD states that a newer version of windows is on the computer than on the CD. although system properties says SP2.
So, How can I get this computer back to how it came brand new. And then will I be able to update windows?
