On the 2 OS'es i would tend to think you have more than 1 cd-dvd drives in the computer, plus maybe a second hard drive partitioned into multiple drives. My compaq has a C os drive, D recovery drive, E dvd-rom drive, F dvd-rw drive, G 1st partition on a second HD and H 2nd partition -2nd hard drive. Extra drive letters may also be caused by leaving USB devices attached while trying to install windows. Apparently you still have even more drives unless you have set the drive with the windows CD as the "J" drive manually. I disconnect everything but what is needed when reinstalling the OS. I may have to later reinstall drivers and such but at least the OS does install.

It may be simply that you upgraded your computer to SP2 and are trying to use a SP1 CD to install with. The SP1 cd won't install as it sees that your computer has the updated SP2 version. More than likely you will need to wipe the hard drive and then use the windows CD to install.

Heres a microsoft article on asms.
