XP Won't re-install - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
i've set the 1st boot device to CD/DVD/CD-RW and right now its not booting up. It won't even show an install screen, its just black, so do i need a new disc?

can you post a tree listing of the data on the CD? (edit - sorry not the whole thing, jjust the top level)
It might just be missing boot files.

what do you mean by tree listing?

and i think it is missing the boot files, because it just loads the boot screen then nothing, it doesnt even go into the windows xp loading screen where its black and has that bar moving
