... enter your bios and alter the bootup order sequence to cd/dvd as first option harddrive as second.

... disable the boot to network Lan which you are booting to!
(save settings on exit of bios)

... you may have to offer Sata driver via <F6> <key> prompt during early installation stage!

Thank you very much Angel I appreciate the speedy response :)
I have done what you stated to do with the bios change Still no luck :( I am going from vista to xp3 btw I used a dell drivers and utilities disk to get the fdisk and deleted old partitions and made a new partition and activated it It said to format by typing "format c:/s" but that did not want to work. So i left the /s out and it formatted, i guess lol I put the win xp3 in and blue screen says "setup did not find any hard disk drivers" now what
