Major problems reinstallling xp - help needed

  Widows Son 17:53 09 Nov 2005

I've formatted my hard drive and now cannot reinstall xp. I'm getting loads of "windws could not find the installer for" Net, battery, cdrom, diskdrive, cdrom, image, infrared etc "Contact your hardware vendor for assistance.

The CD appears to be fine, is genuine, and I've tried to install from 2 different drives. I've reformatted the drive several times but still getting nowhere. The drive is formatted NTFS
