    Hi.

    The information is not enough.

    Can you try to install again?

    Be careful to follow all instructions.

    Hello,

    I will ask the most basic question. I assume you set your PC's BIOS to boot from CD to install XP. Have you reset the BIOS to boot from Drive C:\

    As I say, basic question but how many of us have forgotten to reset the boot order in BIOS in our eagerness to get into XP.

    Cheers,

    Aunty Jack.
