hi...i am trying to re install xp from disc but when it re boots after closing down it repeats the installation again....HELP!!!

remove the cd from the drive as the PC is rebooting after it has instaled the windows files, when the instalation continues it will then ask for the disk again

When it is rebooting you can also access the BIOS to change the first boot to your harddrive.

When you first install XP from the disk it will ask you to "Press any key to continue" do this the first time only and on the next two times, ignore the message and let your system re-boot by itself. This way it will pick up the install files from the hard drive and continue to load as it should.
