Don't blame the computer, it's your fault. You should have installed the RC, not the beta. The beta expired in August, the RC is good until June 2010. Wipe the drive & start from scratch.

Are you saying you're trying to restore XP on a Desktop computer using Laptop Recovery media?

It ain't gonna work.

You'll have to Purchase XP for your home Built system.

There is nothing to learn from someone who already agrees with you.
