Hello, I halfwittingly decided to re-install windows xp on my computer, half-way through the installation I realized I did not have the correct discs. How do I cancel this installation? I've tried F3 on the installation screen, F8 brings up a seemingly useless boot menu, and safe-mode will not work due to the lack of an OS installed. I have windows 7 discs at the ready if this makes your task and simpler.

If the installation already started, let alone formatted the drive, install 7 from your disk on restart.
As in, put the disk in and attempt to boot from disk or whichever it's called?
