If you're booting from the xp cd and getting that message it probably means your cd is damaged or your cd/dvd drive is failing and not reading it.

If you're trying to do the reinstall from within a windows session or are trying a repair or 'over the top' install during a windows session--well that's not the way to do it and the error may be associated with that.

Anyway, you might want to clear that up with additional details.

"booting from the xp cd"

Just to clarify, this means putting the CD in the drive then powering off and on again.
If the CD is not seen then ensure the CD is ahead of the HD in BIOS.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I've seen that message before when the system date was way off. Go into the BIOS and make sure the time and date are set correctly.
