Help needed after install

Hello, i have just tried to format and reinstall windows XP from the discs i got with my new pc on to an older one, i am no expert by any means but it looked as if it was loading ok and kept asking for each disc to be put into the cd drive in turn and what have you, but now when i try use the pc nothing much happens. Any ideas please.

What you are doing is illegal as the CDs are only licensed to the original machine they came with.

Secondly you'll probably find the drivers are specific to the new PC and won't work with the old one.

You've answered your question in your previous thread click here . Those disks can only be used with an emachines PC.
