After trying to solve some issues, I eventually had to format my laptop to attempt to reinstall xp. Now when I am inserting the xp disc on starting up my laptop it is not recognising it as a boot disc and consequently it will not start the installation or do anything. Any help appreciated.

is it an original copy?

is your BIOS configured to check your cd-rom drive before it checks your hard drive while booting?

The disc has service pack installed and all the updates and hotfixes to Jan2k7. Is there something else that I need to add to the disc or...???

Thanks, it seemed that you are right. I got my hands on an original and it is now working fine.


Thanks for your help.
