After formating a PC World PC for a friend and restoring the OS Win XP from the disks supplied (restore disks as opposed to the prefered OS disks, all you get from PC World). The restore files copied onto the the hard drive, but when the PC is restarted i get the message "Load Error Press Any Key to Continue). After pressing a key the same message appears.

Any assistance would be gratefully received.

Thanks

If a pc from PCW there is a good chance it has a recovery partition.

Try tapping F11 or F10 on startup,hopefully you will see a screen giving you 3 options.

One of these will be to factory reset,however if the whole drive has been formatted,i doubt this will work and neither will the restore discs as the recovery discs may need access to the ghost image on the partition.

Of course i maybe wrong.
