    i had a dell pc and it had a disk but it didnt install windows xp it was just a dell restore disk. All i can think of is get a hold of a real xp disk and install it lol. (or even a hookey copy)

    Once again try to boot from the dell disk, or try just leaving it in the drive and see if it boots itself lol.

    hey man i have a dell too press f12 on boot and go to disk utils and select diagnostics

    or try using ghost... you might be able to rescue ya disc...

    try formatting it using windows if ghost works

    or take ya hard drive out and put it in slave or cable select in someone elses pc then if you boot their pc and it should find ur hard drive... if not then try find it in device manager...

    then format then shove it in ur pc and reinstall

    or or or or try getting a new dvd drive or even a cd drive then try again

    good luck
