Sounds like a bad CD. Is the CD scratched?

Then that points to a bad driver. Is this CD a generic Windows XP disk or is it an OEM (i.e. does it say Dell or HP on the top)?

There is something you are not telling us.

Did you set CD drive to first in boot order in BIOS? If you did, it maybe drive is gone. Note:
"....because i just installed it on another computer"
You can use the disk again, but you can only use a key on one computer.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
