LOADING or reading the XP disk? I had some problems reading off an XP disk before, and I attributed it to the drive. Do you have a drive you could swap out to see if its the CDROM?

Just because its a premade dosn't mean it can't load XP, I have Dells, Hp, & Compaqs never had a problem, there just computers, so you need to find the real problem, check the cd drive make sure its working. alot of premades put a recovery partition on them for recovering the operating system, if thats the case, then use your me boot disk and use fdisk to delete all of the partitions then make a new one.
