how can i install frsh copy of windows xp sp3 in my dell inspiron 6000? when i inserted the disc in the dvd drive and open power, when pressing F12 to choose where to boot first and select cd/dvd/ drive the CPU will read and it appears on my screen caldera dr-dos 7.03 using the DPMS DOS Protected Mode Services not the starting of my XP installation? thanks in advance
I've been using the disk in all my PCs and other services. Still when I get put it on the dell inspirion i always get the CALDERA DOS when booting...
Second dumb question: Are you certain that the Dell is booting from the DVD? Just for hoots and giggle, put some other bootable DVD in the drive and boot up. If it boots into whatever's on the DVD, you still have a mystery. If it boots to CALDERA DOS, we have a big clue.
