|It boots...you press a key to boot off the cd...it copies the files.....restarts and then do you see a screen Press any key to boot off cd?|
You should see it....again, but don't press a key.
The files xp needs are already loaded to start the install.
After the files are copied the machine reboots and because there is a cd in.. by default, it ask if you want to boot off of it.
Leave the cd in but just ignore the second press a key message.
Or are you not pressing a key to boot off the cd twice and it's just going into a reboot cycle?
