:tazz: It's continuing to reboot over and over......
Right before it starts a new reboot it says "Setup is being restarted"

Does it appear to be installing files or is it just cycling through a boot sequence?

Restart the computer.

When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
Choose the installation that you need to access from the Recovery Console.
When you are prompted to type the administrator password, press ENTER.
At the command prompt, type chkdsk /r, and then press ENTER.
When Chkdsk has finished running, read the results, and then take any necessary steps to complete the process. For example, you may be prompted to run chkdsk /f to fix certain problems.
Restart the computer, and then try to run Setup again.

SETUP

"To set up Windows XP now, press ENTER...Press ENTER

Then press F8 to accept the Licensing Agreement.

"To repair the selected Windows XP installation, Press R...Press R

Have your Product Key ready...

Good morning. :tazz: I have run chkdsk (Booting from the CD) It has finished scanning. It gives a volume serial number, and says completed. No other instructions. No cursor box. What next?
