Xp Install .ddl

So i have an acer aspire 5100 so i put xp on it and i got a ddl error so i put in the xp disk to reinstall but it goes straight to the last known good config normal start safe mode so i was wondering how to get the disk to boot from start before that screen because i see the splash screen

Is there any way to boot from cd or hit a key to start the xp cd becuase in bios it does not say cd driver it says usbcd and that has not started it...

Auto-reboot disable:
When Running windows and it crashes you will get a blue screen and it will automatically restart, often it will restart too fast for you to see the error message.
To disable auto restart on system failure, so you can see the error message.

1. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> System (Windows+Pause works, too)
2. Go to Advanced
3. Under the Startup and Recovery section, click Settings...
4. Under System Failure un-check "Automatically restart"

and post the error message for further help.
