As far as I know both upgrade and full versions are bootable; as are all Recovery disks? S is the XP CD a genuine XP CD - or a true/validexact copy of one?

Incidentally, have you set boot option to CD/DVD first; and if so what actually happens when you use the XP cd?

Besides the Vista CD can you access other CDs in this latop?

And without changing anything in the bios... can you still access and boot th Vista CD now?
