|I removed the WinXP key you posted as a courtesy to you. If someone else were to use that key you wouldn't be able to anymore. |
The latest versions of Mozilla Firefox require a minimum of SP2 when running WinXP.
Firefox 46.0.1 System Requirements
Operating Systems (32-bit and 64-bit)
• Windows XP SP2
• Windows Server 2003 SP1
• Windows Vista
• Windows 7
• Windows 8
• Windows 10
You do not have SP2 on your installation CD nor do you have it installed on your computer. That may well be the reason you can't run Firefox.
AGAIN*** You are attempting to install WinXP from the CD without deleting the partition.
Quite honestly, I don't think you will be able to repair the current installation. We are on #44 here and no further along.
Do you even have the BIOS (setup) set to boot to CD drive first? Check it by restarting the computer and tapping the Del key to open the BIOS.
What is currently happening is what riider suspected in #4 above. I think you are NOT getting to the WinXP CD at all.
Review the first few replies above AFTER verifying you have the boot order to CD first, hard drive second.
