XP professional old computer

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Im trying to install xp on an old computer with a not so good bios. I run the CD and go through the formatting and copying files. then when the system restarts it goes through the same process again. there is not a time like on other installs when you can press a key to run the CD it simply starts running again. what can i change in the bios to stop the CD autostarting.

any help would be appreciated.
