    Ok . Im trying to install XP but my computer keeps restarting the old
    version on the C:Drive .

    I have disabled every other boot option apart from the CD Rom , but it
    still boots up from C: . Why is it doing this ? . My XP disc is all
    pukka CD rom works fine . This is very confusing .

  2. Have you set the boot order to look for bootable data on the CD first, then
    on the hard drive second?

    If the boot sequence is hard drive then CD, the bootable disc in the ROM
    drive will never been seen.
