so then after you wipe your hard drive clean, to do a clean install you dont go to the boot device menue in your bios and move the cd rom to the top of the list so that when the computer reboots it installs windows from your install disc? im sorry but i dont think you understand the problem im having ?so ill try to explain again. iI used the free program active kill disc to erase my hard drive . so that i could do a fresh re install of xp but after erasing hard drive now my system will not read or detect my cd drive msg says error loading operating system
