I have set the cd as the first boot device and when I restart the computer with the xp disc in the drive nothing happens... I tried using the recovery disk but it goes only so far and says a certain file cannot be retrived..... what can I do to get it going...HELP

Do you still have the old drive with a working OS on it? If so, you can clone it to the new drive and then install the new drive.
