Enter the BIOS & make sure the CD drive is listed 1st in the boot order.

I put in the system restore disks and this is what it is telling me ...Disk Boot Failure, Insert system disk and press enter. I tried putting in my Windowx XP cd and it boote dup but installed windows XP on her system and I thought that was OK as I used her product key on her system, but got invalid product key? Her system had Windows XP Media Center OS on it
