Dell Latitude CSx would not boot with win XP or Win 2000 disks?

I bought a Dell Latitude CSx with blank HDD. I tried to boot it from CDROM with Win Xp disk it does not recognize it as system disk. I tried Win 2000 disk and I got the same result. Does anybody know why? Appreciate your help. This is for my little daughter who is anxiously waiting for this to work. Please Help!!!!

I suspect you have a bad cd drive. I formated my Dell Csx with xp the day I got it. If you can not get a replacment cd from where you bought it, check Ebay.

did you hit f12 to go to alternate boot options?

Also in BIOS you can change the bootup sequence so that it checks CD first, then floppy, the hard drive.

Dependiong on the type CD you are trying to use. sometimes some drives dont see all cd's for boot up.
Are you using an OEM CD? or a copy?
Is the CD damaged or scratched?
