Installation issues

My workplace has a PC with an OEM Version of Windows XP installed. The
software wasn't activated and somebody removed the key, so we purchased a new
XP Pro Full Version with SP2 to install and correct the issues. Because of
the situation, we can't log in to Windows at all on this machine. I want to
install the new XP Pro, but get an error when I boot up the PC with the
software in the disk drive. Any advice? I would be totally happy to
reformat this thing and start from scratch if anybody has tips for that
process. Thanks!

Hi,
I think your OS is Windows XP 32-bit and this NG deals exclusively with
64-bit OSs.
Please post in the proper NG if you are a "32-bit man".
Try to describe your problem more precisely your issue.
What is the meaning of "get an error when I boot up the PC with the software
in the disk drive".
What is the error message? Does it happen during the installation or after
the OS is installed? What disk (Optical or hard disk)?
Best of luck.

Thank you. I will check on the 32-bit vs 64-bit question first. I will also
write down the specific error and try to post in the correct area, if this
isn't it. I'm not sure how to tell if it's the optical or hard disk.

Not a rule of thumb, but optical (CD or DVD) would give a "read error".
Hard disk failure could be write or read error.

Carlos,

I did start a post under the XP Pro general area..... so didn't know if I
should respond here as well or not....

However, with the Windows software disc in the PC and the BIOS set to boot
from CR-ROM first, windows setup begins, goes through loading drivers, and
says it is "starting windows". Then I get the stop error: 0x0000007B
(0xF78D2525, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000). Sadly, I have no idea what
that means.

The 0x0000007B means a driver is missing or corrupted for the hard drive
controller. This also means the computer is trying to boot from the
hard drive and not from the CD drive.

To boot from the CD drive you will have to make the computer boot from
it. When the computer starts up is there a prompt to boot from the CD?
If so press any key. If not you will need to get into the BIOS a set
the CD drive as the 1st boot device.
