Hello,
I totaly wiped my Hard drive on my laptop now it will not let me reinstall windows. Right now I have no os on it. It got a virus and messed up the recovery files on it.
My laptop is an Acer Aspire 5735z. IT had Windows vista and now nothing. I have tired to install Windows xp from a disk. It will load so far and then give me an error. How can I fix this problem.

If your XP disc is pre SP2, then that's likely the problem. If it is, you'll need to slipstream the updated service pack, into an updated install disc.
