Howdy and welcome to G2G:

Are you using the XP cd to partition, format and install??

Have you tried cleaning the cd and the cd-rom player??

Where did you get your cd from - can you return it as defective??

I am using an xp cd to partition format and install

I am sure my cd isnt defective because i had opened it on another computer and it had worked fine

I also tried cleaning the cd drive and cd. would u suggest that i return this cd for a new one or buy a new one, or would u think that this is the computers problem
