Is it a GENUINE XP CD.

We will NOT help anyone we suspect of having obtained their software illegally.

I didn't obtain anything illegally to my knowledge. My computer was not booting at all, I had a friend look at it and he moved my memory to alternate sockets because he thought the sockets it was in were damaged.

That allowed the computer to boot. When I put in my original Windows disk to boot from, I kept getting an error message (I forget what it was). When I looked up the error on line, the solution seemed to be that I needed to have a boot disk with SP2 and SP3 streamed into it. I ordered one from an internet site that said that the disk was perfectly legal. The instructions for the CD stated "this media is a full version program which has the license key embedded in the media."

Also, when I load Windows now and it gets to the screen for you to pick a partition to install to, all four lines say there is no disk.

Hope this helps. Again, I did not knowingly purchase anything illegal.

Is the original Windows installation still on the Hard Drive.
On setup normally F2 or Delete is the hard drive shown.
How many ram sockets are there., presumably as you say to alternate sockets, there are four.
If so it may well be for a dual core processor, which WAS it in and which is it in now.
