Hi, got major problem!
Installed windows 7 RC on a old computer now unable to revert it back to XP since it is not reading the XP boot CD from BIOS, also in windows, the install XP option on the CD setup.exe is greyed out.
How can I get XP back!!?? aarrgghh!!

remove the mobo battery and find the jumper to clear the bios settings. Then put the battery back and with luck your bios can then be set to boot from the cd.
