Ok well firstly you need to make sure that you have the BOOT priorities right in the BIOS. Now for it to boot into Windows XP setup you need to go into the BIOS and make sure the the Optical drive ( DVD/CD ROM DRIVE ) Is the 1st boot device set. Once you have done that save and exit out of the BIOS and insert a Windows XP setup disk into the Optical drive and restart the system.
