I am trying to install Windows XP Pro on a machine I just built. Right after I hit F8 on the license agreement it tells me that "Setup could not read the CD you inserted, or the CD is not a valid Windows CD." The CD is valid and full. It is a volume license (legal). I just tried another copy, and it still won't work. Any ideas?
Everything is brand new out of the box.

It is not an upgrade CD, but the computer is acting like it is. That's why I thought a new copy might help, but both are the same. I talked to the IT guy that gave me the CD and he was positive that it was the full version.
